It’s the Anti-Labor Day weekend, have a beer

Who can be vilified over hot dogs, hamburgers and beer this weekend? Teachers? Shall we fondly reminisce over how Ronald Reagan dismissed PATCO? Maybe something on eliminating the minimum wage and how to stimulate the capital accumulation of the wealthy with right-to-work-for-less law? How ’bout we run the evergreen “Americans don’t have the skills to compete in the global workforce” up the flag pole a few times? Perhaps we can smile over the elimination of blue-collar manufacturing work? Those hard hats earned too much money so we broke them all down!

That’s what this holiday is, one of America’s phoniest, marking the end of Summer. For the last twenty years all I recall is politicians using the weekend to write anti-Labor opinion pieces, usually stuff praising America’s corporate masters or other miscellaneous social and economic predators.

See if you can spot any of it.
