Today is Labor Day. Unfortunately, its role as the traditional end of the summer often overshadows its true meaning.
Labor Day is a day to recognize everyone who works for a living and the contribution that work makes to civil society. In between your barbecue and your hammock time, take a moment to think about the value of work, the role it plays in your life, and the people who do difficult or menial jobs without attention.
Then take action:
Work for just policies for all workers.
Treat those in service occupations and retail with kindness and patience.
