    If you expect me to believe that Labor Day is the day to celebrate employment then why are the slackers getting the day off too. It is just a democratic way of celebrating communism which gave power to the workers.

    swr: You sound like those nostalgic for slavery. Back then, union membership was a crime, that’s why so many of the early were called “Brotherhood of …”, disguised as fraternal organizations. Many of the earliest assembly line type jobs employed those of a same former nationality, who would pool their pennies to hire a reader to break the monotony of repetitive work – and the works read were socialist, but being in the workers’ native language, the bosses never caught on.
    Even independent farmers were joining together in the Farmers National Alliance, with their own newspapers and traveling lecturers – and brought about the People’s Party (populists) in the US, and similar movements world-wide (today called the Green Party in 83 countries). Lawrence Goodwin said, “The average dirt farmer had a better knowledge of how money really works, than a graduate student in economics does today.”
