“Labor Day has been cancelled due to lack of jobs. Monday is now Empty Chair Day. Put an empty chair in your front yard.
This picture has a lot of meaning to it. This once great holiday (that we also celebrate in Canada, we call it Labour day) has gone the way of most of
our other holidays, it no longer has any meaning, at least in my opinion.
I always considered this holiday as a time to celebrate the fruits of our labor and to give thanks for the opportunities we have been given to become
providers. Regrettably, things aren't so great anymore. Unemployment is on the rise all over the world and the economy does not give much hope for the
regular working person who wants to put food on the table and provide shelter and clothing and all other necessities for their family.
Whether we know it or not, we have allowed the Elite to gain a strangle hold on us so tight that there may never be any hope of returning to our
illusion of freedom of competitive business.
Sorry I wish I could provide some solutions other than just provide this negative opinion of mine but I am feeling kind of defeated at the moment. I
see highly skilled people who cannot find a job even though they have great work ethic and are willing to get their hands dirty so to speak and start
at entry level positions.
I appreciate the intention of this holiday, but it should no longer apply until we actually fix the system and return it to what we believe it should
stand for. Of course we all will have different views on how the system should be but any human with genuine, good intentions can probably find common
ground when it comes to this view point.
Happy Labor Day
