The U.S. Department of Labor’s page on the history of Labor Day notes the holiday “is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.” Labor Day was established to celebrate labor –- organized labor, to be more specific.
Many of us think of Labor Day as a three day weekend signaling the end of summer and the start of another school year.
Today, let’s honor the people responsible for that grandeur – namely, the profit-seeking entrepreneurs and business people who make our economy hum.
Small businesses are the major creators of new jobs and are the engines that run our economy.
The many hours of work, the high risk that small business owners take when starting a business and the unseen stress on the entrepreneur and family is not seen or recognized.
Today I recognize each and every one of you for your dedication and being responsible for your own economic destiny.
Pat yourself on the back and be thankful for the opportunity that we have to pursue our dreams.
Make it a habit to always support a small business, whenever possible, in all your purchases and service requirements.
