Fourteen Pax and a beach Sandcrab posted for a Labor Day beat down on the beach…a little historical perspective on Labor Day.
At
the height of the industrial revolution, the average American was working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week…despite restrictions, children as young as 5 or 6 worked in factories, mills and mines across the country

In June of 1894, the American railroad union called for a boycott of all Pullman railway cars,crippling traffic nationwide. The fed govt dispatched troops to Chicago, unleashing riots and resulting in the deaths of a dozen workers..
On the 28th of June, Grover Cleveland passed the law to establish Labor Day…

In addition to our freedom from other countries , we have been given the freedom to work as much or as little as we would like. So let’s work out as hard as we can today and honor all of those who have come before us…
