Happy Labor Day, America

The five-day work week. The eight-hour day. Overtime pay. Paid vacation. Sick days. Workplace safety standards. Child labor laws. Health benefits. Retirement security. Unemployment compensation. Living wages.

On Labor Day 2012, S&R says thanks to the American worker and to the dedicated Labor organizations whose commitment and sacrifice built this.

Let’s add one more to that list: the long weekend. Enjoy it.
