Labor Day

Labor Day isn’t a day off for everyone. Many public safety, rescue and health professionals stay on the job to keep us safe and healthy. Public sector workers maintain water and treatment plants and infrastructure operations to make sure there aren’t any disruptions in transportation and essential services. Private sector folks make sure that we continue to have utilities and phone service, and in many cases, the cable or satellite service that carries the work of many communications folks to produce live programs for our viewing pleasure.

News professionals work to keep us informed and many in the retail and service industry work to make sure we can purchase groceries, supplies and gas. We can still travel and stay in motels and hotels because others are on the job. Thanks to technology, I can still go to an ATM and get cash, but someone is still sitting in an office someplace making sure the computers are working properly.

If you get a chance today, take time to thank those people who stay on the job, even during a holiday.
