As summer draws to a close and the approach of Labor Day, we would like to take some time to recognize and appreciate the hard work of all the workers that make daily life possible.
Labor Day gets started in the 19th with the recognition of unjust treatment of workers and laborers. On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history. This brought public attention to the unsafe working conditions, hours, and wages of the working class in the US. After 12 years of many more protests, marches, strikes, on June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed into law the official Federal holiday of Labor Day.
As you plan to celebrate your labor day, possibly with picnics, barbecues, and fireworks, we ask that you keep in mind the continued plights and struggles they still face. As Labor Day comes and goes, it is important to keep these issues in your mind year-round. Let's show appreciation to these laborers and workers not just on Labor Day, but continuously through your daily life.
We at Stoop Logic would like to give our thanks to medical workers, hard laborers, first responders, delivery drivers, cooks, servers, plumbers, public servants, store clerks, and the many other hard workers that are the cornerstone of our society.
And remember, all workers are skilled workers!
Thank you and have a great holiday,
The Stoop Logic Team
