“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
Today is supposed to be a day of tribute, but really it is a day of remembrance.
So as you head off to the mall wearing your clothes made in Indonesia. As you walk around the stores and stare at the shelves filled with products made in Communist Red China.
Please remember to take a few minutes to lower your head and reflect on how our country used to be. Think about the millions and millions of of jobs we no longer have.
Remember to shed a tear for
American manufacturing…..You will be missed manufacturing.
American textiles…..You were the best.
Give a shout out to the steel industry……When new California bridges lasted longer then opening day.
American software engineers…….Remember when Microsoft hired Americans and people lined up to buy Windows 95. Now they hire foreigners and nobody wants Windows 8.
There were the American call center workers….When you called for assistance and could understand.
There were American farmers…..Go out to an American farm today and try to find an Americans. Good luck.
Yes Labor Day…..Let us never forget.
