Today is the American (and Canadian) Labor Day Holiday, so An American Editor has the day off.

Want to know about the Labor Day holiday? This TED video gives a history:

Raena White provides a musical perspective:

Labor songs were the “meat” of folksingers like Pete Seeger. Here he sings, “Which Side Are You On?”

and “Union Maid.”

Labor Day is (was) a celebration of the rise of the American and Canadian worker from oppressive, free market working conditions. Alas, it seems that the tides are flowing out again.

Enjoy your Labor Day. An American Editor will be back on Wednesday, September 9.

Richard Adin, An American Editor
