    I labored earlier only because I work for an idiot......didn't do it for the boss, did it to help out my co-workers because we all work for the same idiot.

    Good point was brought up, 'the entire time we worked & we didn't have any kind of boss, we never had coverage issues, now that we have a new manager, we have had at least 4 shifts where they have not had anyone to cover'. How does that happen? Oh well, I'm outta there now. :D

    I was somewhat surprised to see how many of us worked on Labor Day. I thought I was the only one. I don't know what has happened to the celebration of our hard fought holiday. We seem to work it now instead of celebrating it. ( It was good to see that Kemo did). I can remember when I was 18 and it was 1970. The company that I worked for had this huge Labor Day picnic every year. Year in and year out there would be families, rides, hot dogs, corn the cob, burgers and kegs of beer!Lots of beer.
    That was before the days of liability law suits. The factory would shut down. Working overtime wasn't an option! Now, we are asked if we are going to work the holiday by the company. We are compensated with premium time pay for sure, but something is missing. The cause is lost. Heck, we don't even have Christmas decorations hanging in the plant anymore! :(
    Sorry to be such a rain cloud, maybe I am just waxing sentimental.
    Oh, and Happy Labor Day to you too!
