Flag at top of Empire State Building

Special thanks to all of the people who are at work on Labor Day: the garbage collectors, the nurses, hospital housekeeping, the grocery store clerks and shelf stockers, police, firefighters, etc. 

It is a hell of a lot harder being at work when you know the rest of the country is at home.

  1. Ah, it’s Labor Day there, is it? That’s why it’s so quiet on the ‘net!
    Your post reminds me of a Christmas when I was in hospital as a child and of course the doctors and nurses were all working… but not so hard that, late that night, one of the doctors couldn’t find time to dress up as Father Christmas and leave toy-filled ‘stockings’ on the end of every child’s bed. πŸ™‚

  2. I agree that holiday workers should be saluted.It has become a tradition now that for retail, holidays are the busiest days for them. Around here, it is grocery stores that get mobbed and yesterday was terrible. But its back to school tomorrow around in our community. So everyone is stocking up, including us. Hubby is a teacher.

  3. Thanks! And Happy (Belated) Labor day to you too! πŸ™‚ I appreciate so much the people who work on holidays (and night shifts! :0)!!
    I actually don’t mind working on Labor Day (or any of the other holidays), but what unsettles me is my family’s saying “I can’t believe you have to work!!?” every time! XD What I see it as par for the course for an entry level job (even though I’m super lucky because I can work from home), they see as injustice. πŸ™‚
