Today is celebrated as Labor Day in the US, honoring workers and the trade union movement. The date was chosen as an alternative to May 1 (still International Workers Day) which was too closely associated with the socialist movement for the late 19th century establishment. While there are always parades and rallies it serves more for most people as the unofficial end of summer and the start of fall/winter sport seasons. For me feels odd as it is my first work holiday after leaving my job. Activity on that front will ramp up starting this week. I think I’ll take today off anyway!
