Yes, we at the House of Sage have decided to change the holiday...
Instead of celebrating Unions (should we have a Jimmy Hoffa day while we're at it?), we are celebrating all the industrious men and women that are smart enough to advocate for themselves. All those that don't need to pay someone to get them raises and vacation. Those who are intelligent and independent and don't take 45 15-minute breaks a day. Those that stay until a job is finished (even if it's after 3pm) and don't leave little old ladies in South Philly without any heat in the middle of winter. Those who take initiative and never utter the phase, "that's not part of my job".
These are the ones that we choose to thank for the success of American growth and business on this day. Those that do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay...with no societal drain or political considerations.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS THAT KEEP JOBS AFFORDABLE AND WELL DONE!!!! HAPPY NON-LABOR DAY!
*Addition: Just wanted to give a link to Associated Builders & Contractors, Inc. --and association for non-union workers that many of my close friends are involved with.
