From the people who brought you the 5 day/40 hr/weekends off work week... among many other good things. They're not perfect but without them we'd be back to the days of the "Robber Barons"

As a lifelong trade unionist and former shop steward, I couldn't agree more. Who says there isn't a role for trade unions in the modern economy ?

 

Unhappily, since I am now retired, I don't get holiday weekends any more, but I hope you enjoy yours,

Thank you Chris, I am also a former Union member currently permanently disabled due to severe heart issues. I had an S-ICD implanted this past March and had been wearing an external device for 6 months prior to that.

 

Here's an animation of the procedure if anyone cares to take a look.

I have a little story about unions. When I was in my early 20's (1950's) I worked for a tv cable company in London. There were branches all over London with "wiremen" and TV repairmen as employees. The branch I worked at elected me as their representative on the "committee", This turned out to be pretty useless. (no teeth) and I was asked to sound out union joining. We had a meeting and I managed to get two reps of the ETU to come and talk about us joining. After their talk they asked for any questions. One man stood up and said,"If we join how soon can we have a strike, and what can the union do about the man that is being victimised for continual lateness." This man,I understood, later became a councillor  in Hammersmith (London). Needless to say I resigned.

princecharming, if you are from the USA you would know that Labor Day in the US is the first Monday in September.
What country are you speaking of, which has Labor Day in December?

Or perhaps you are "from" the USA but moved to another country at an early age and would not know when Labor Day in the US is.
