If you’re one of the fortunate majority of workers in America with a day off today, thank your employer and those leaders who have gone before you to make today a day of rest.
Some 97% of employers give their people a paid holiday today. Are you enjoying the day with gratitude? Your family probably is. Honor them by enjoying the day together.
It really doesn’t matter how you enjoy Labor Day. Sure, shopping will be at the top of the list for many. But there are parades, picnics, cookouts, concerts, time on the lake, and so many more activities to make today truly restful. It’s for families, communities, and our nation. Just look around and see the many blessings we have been given.
So, put away the emails and the follow-up calls and the sales quota for just one day. You’re being paid to NOT do those daily tasks. Invest your energy and attention into personal refreshment and family time.
Remember, too, that some will not have the day off. Lots of retailers keep their people working on this big sale weekend. Emergency responders are on duty today, as well as our men and women in the military. Honor their sacrifice by taking care of business at home today.
And tomorrow? Hit the ground running with renewed energy and the strength that comes from having a happy home and a job to return to tomorrow.
Happy Labor Day from all of us at Core Technology Solutions!
