We’ll be closed Monday September 7th to celebrate, among other things, the 8 hour work day. It seems like a day off to celebrate work should be called something other than a synonym for the thing you’re not doing. “Rest Day” would be ok. Wait, didn’t Sundays used to be for that? Now we only get one day a year??
Here’s some more info about the holiday: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labour_Day
On your day off, maybe you’d like to sit around with your family and watch some Welder Series assembly videos… make sure you’ve got lots of snacks though because the kids will want to invite all their friends.
Thinking about work and labour, I can’t help but come back to how thankful I am for my country and for my wife, the mother of our four children. Very thankful indeed.
