Dear Commons Community,
Today we observe Labor Day in respect for the working class who have given and continue to give so much to this country. Manual workers and craftspeople who build the buildings, the roads, and the monuments as well as the clerks and professionals who toil in offices, hospitals and schools should be shown our appreciation on this day. Unfortunately Labor Day 2011 may be more somber because of the high number of people (as many as 25 million) who are unemployed or underemployed.
Happy Labor Day!
