Those in the paid day off group are probably doing something today that requires our fellow citizens to have to labor on the day designated for workers to have off. I read somewhere that the majority of Americans work in service industry jobs. Considering this is a big weekend for sales, most of them will be working long hours. I guess their day really is filled with labor.
Although out economy is coming back, we still have a hidden unemployment situation. Older, educated workers having a hard time becoming re-employed or being underemployed. There’s also the workers who gave up. They were cut off unemployment or no long bother to look for work.
Even as I enjoyed my time off, these thoughts crept into my mind.
