It’s not that big of an announcement, but it’s good to know that we will be closed on Monday September 7th, 2015 for Labor Day.
Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Therefore, in 1887, the United States holiday was established in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.
While I don’t know much about the Knights of Labor, I feel like a slave of labor over the last few weeks and I’m grateful that it’s coming to and end. I’m pretty strong minded, but even I’ve cracked a time or two 😉
Next Monday is a much needed day off for a lot of us, and please note that Mission Repair will be closed for the day! I’ll be back soon right here in the Mission Repair blog-o-sphere.
Have a great day, Ryan
