The real face of Labor Day

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 9:30 am by George Smith

Labor Day, as defined at the DoL: “The first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.”

I look forward to the expostulations and op-eds we get this time of year: Anti-labor and anti-union essays, bits on right-to-work-for-less, tributes to the biggest corporations for their innovation in trimming the workforce & making work not pay, how the boot heel of Obamacare on the throat of said corporations will cause them to fire good Americans and how the Middle Class can be restored by not raising the minimum wage or perhaps even eliminating it.

Also, school is about to begin and teacher unionization is totally evil, California is an economic basket case/Texas is business paradise, and bad minimum wage workers should take the day to reflect on all they have been given and stop causing hardship for Wal-Mart and McDonalds.

Remember that food stamps should not be given to people who won’t work even though most who get them do and if you are working and still poor it is either a bad lifestyle/bad personal responsibility thing or because you have zero skills compared to everyone else in the global economy and deserve it.

Feel free to add your own variations on the familiar American homilies to the value and sanctity of human capital.

Remember to buy the hot dogs and beer, they’re on special, and college football begins this weekend, one part of the economy where the workers receive very good pay and benefits.
