Top 5 great moments in the history of labor:
- Ending child labor
- The 8 hour workday
- Paid overtime
- The weekend
- The minimum wage
So enjoy your cookout and beer and relaxing with your family on the last day of summer, but take a few minutes to think about what we're actually celebrating this weekend.
(If this post seems strangely familiar, it's because it's a lightly edited re-post of my Friday Top 5 from Labor Day weekend a year ago. Yes, I think this information is THAT important.)
