Labor Day is a chance for us as a society to acknowledge the hard work of every worker. Those people have made significant contributions to building the world and our road to continuing development. The persistent, unyielding work ethic that has been ingrained in our country from its inception is still embedded inside each of us.
Therefore, every year in 1st of May together we celebrate Labor Day to reflect our honor to all the workers.
Ultimately, Labor Day is a time to celebrate the fact that we have accomplished so much as a society in such a short amount of time through hard work and by relying on one another. We should also recognize that work is an intrinsic part of who we are and what makes us human.
Labor Day originated in the labor movement. After an unsuccessful attempt to break up a railroad strike in 1894, Grover Cleveland declared Labor Day a federal holiday. However, I believe its objective is to honor the achievements and successes of all American workers.
Some in the labor movement consider it as a day to emphasize the importance of organized employees. I would not want to remove more than 93 percent of private-sector workers from consideration for recognition.
We should recognize the efforts of all workers, union, and non-union, equally. While I feel that, at this point in history, employees are typically better off without the expenses and hazards of unionization, I also believe that our union employees deserve our respect and admiration.
We spend a lot of time as individuals looking for flaws in others. Hence, we look at everything they don’t have to do to qualify for our positions. We focus on their flaws and missed opportunities rather than recognizing all of the good they do and what they are capable of doing.
So, before you head away on this Labor Day weekend, take some time to think about the people you work with, both past and present. Find at least one redeemable feature in them and acknowledge it. Send them a letter or make some effort to dial their number.
If they are no longer with us, remember them by displaying one of their outstanding traits in your deeds toward others. It’s preferable to do the reverse.
However, Labor Day and other employee appreciation days are just as essential as any other. They are significant only if they are consistent with how we treat employees throughout the year.
I’ve heard a few bosses argue that employees should consider themselves fortunate to have a job in today’s economic situation. Employers that think this and operate in accordance with it are more likely to be unionized. I feel we are fortunate to have so many hardworking people who are always doing more and working harder.
This Labor Day, it’s critical that we understand that both enterprises and people must focus on the culture for themselves. Also the culture they are attempting to create as organizations. Life provides several opportunities to serve a cause we care about. We generate a shared desire to rise each morning with an ardent commitment to that cause.
