Labor Day



A national holiday since 1894, Labor Day offers us an opportunity to celebrate the dignity of work and the rights of workers. May we show compassion for those who do back-breaking and “demeaning” work for little or no payment. May we challenge ourselves to evaluate our personal lifestyles and assess once again the number of slaves working behind the scenes to make those lifestyles possible. (Calculate your slavery footprint HERE. Has it improved since the last time you responded to the survey?)
