Labor Day is a joke on the proletariat.
Labor Day was created to be a day of rest for the working class American. This however is no more. As America has moved away from a industrial economy to a service economy, Labor Day has lost it’s meaning.
Here is how. The average low wage worker in the past worked in a factory. Today they work at Wal-Mart or TGIF’s. The college educated white collar office worker gets the day of. the CEO gets the day off, the dentist gets the day off, but not the people for who this tradition was started. These people want to go out and spend money on their day off, so the low wage worker, gets to spend their Labor Day, serving the wealthy.
Like I said…
It’s a damned joke.
