Labor Day 2010

You begin to understand the power of social media when the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Secretary makes her Labor Day address via YouTube posted on the DOL blog.  To view celebrations before the advent of Twitter, YouTube and Facebook take a look at the DOL’s History of Labor Day.

As this post finds you on the way out of the office looking forward to enjoying a long weekend with your family, take some time this weekend to remember the purpose of Labor Day, “a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country”.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day.
