Gratitude Monday -Not Labouring Today Edition

Today I am very grateful that my husband and so many other workers have the day off.

I am grateful for the people who fought for the five day week, lunch hours and coffee breaks, holidays, safe working conditions, fair wages, and everything else we take for granted now when we go to work.

I benefit today, as do so many others. I am grateful for it and I hope we never lose sight of how we got here.

I am grateful for all the safety requirements labor organizers pushed for. And are still pushing.
I'm working today, of course, because with animals, _somebody_ has to be there every day (and I love working when we're closed and there are no customers!)

Agreed. Every generation needs to learn about what working conditions were like in the past, and be grateful.
