Today starts Labor Day Weekend. A time we think about the importance of the workers around this country. This holiday was started to honor the contributions of the American worker. It is a time when we look at the success of the nation due to the workers that dedicate their time, skill and life. There will be many events around Carrboro and Chapel Hill, as well as the country highlighting the holiday. During this three day weekend, I challenge you to think about how to continue to support the rights of the American worker.
The back to school morning recording in my house:
“Hurry up or you will be late!”
“Did you brush your teeth?
“Put your shoes on!”
“Wait -where are your socks?”
