  •  Labor Day should be May 1 (2+ / 0-)

    My understanding is that the US deliberately made a "Labor Day" that was NOT the one celebrated in every socialist country and by labor unions everywhere, namely May 1. It would be just horrible if people remembered that holidays and even weekends exist not because businesses spontaneously gave people time off, but because unions pushed and pushed and pushed for shorter working hours.
