No festival of martial glory or warrior’s renown is this; no pageant pomp of war-like conquest, no glory of fratricidal strife attend this day. It is dedicated to peace, civilization and the triumphs of industry. It is a demonstration of fraternity and the harbinger of a better age—a more chivalrous time—when labor shall be best honored and well rewarded.
—Peter J. McGuire, the reported “father” of Labor Day

      There is a lot to be said for having a sense of purpose and service that comes with having a job. Not to mention the lack of isolation from our fellow men & women.
