    Default Happy Labor Day

    Most USA workers have the day off Labor Day the first Monday in September.
    Some even get it without pay if their boss is a cheap-ass!
    Have a good time.

    funny how a day is celebrated in usa based on a day that was born in Britain ..the irony is not lost on us mere colonialists lol

    i guess thats why in yankie land it is spelt "labor" and not "labour " like the rest of the English speaking world
    kiwi land was one of the first to honour (or is that "honor") labour (labor) day as a actual day

    from wiki :
    Karl Marx
    saw it as of vital importance to the workers' health, writing in Das Kapital (1867): "By extending the working day, therefore, capitalist production...not only produces a deterioration of human labour power by robbing it of its normal moral and physical conditions of development and activity, but also produces the premature exhaustion and death of this labour power itself.


    i guess we are all marxist and by default commies

    I say any excuse is a good excuse and any date will do.
    Some Heathenarian countries have no public holiday on 1 May and no Labour Day. Pity!!

    (light blue ) Another public holiday on 1 May
    (light red ) No public holiday on 1 May, but Labour Day on a different date
    (dark red) No public holiday on 1 May and no Labour Day
