Jews should celebrate Labor Day by recommitting to the labor movement.
This Labor Day, while I think about the different types of work we expect from ourselves, I’ll remember that I’m free to formulate an Eishet Chayil of my own.
Labor Day is here and many of us will hear a familiar message: Buy union. But Ari Paul suggests it may be time for progressive-minded consumers to do more than ‘look for the union label.’
Labor Day approaches predictably every year, on the first Monday in September. When it was declared a federal holiday in Connecticut in 1894, thirty states were already celebrating, many with street parades and festivals for workers and their families. The idea resonated for the American people then and it continues to resonate now.
