What REALLY pisses me off Larry, is how Labor Day is supposed to be a day off for EVERYONE not in an essential working field like police and firemen and hospital staff but it's turned into a HUGE sales day for retailers which means more places are open and more people have to work on Labor Day.
It would be nice if May Day could be the day off and ditch Labor Day alltogether, because trust me I'll probably be working.
The whole country shuts down for Christmas, which is not a LEGAL holiday, but a traditional, religious holiday. Easter's almost as bad. Could you imagine how many days a year business would stand still if Ramadan and Yom Kippur and every other religious holiday were "observed"?
But Labor Day? OPEN TILL MIDNIGHT! BIG SALE! SPEND YOUR MONEY! BACK TO
SCHOOL! - Talk about a kick in the teeth.
