Labor Day is a unique Holiday observed As a National Holiday Only in the United states. The Day was established by National Law As a Salute to the working people. This recognition is richly deserved. It is not Only a tribute to the folks who work and that includes most of us but it also confirms one of the great principles upon which this nation was founded the importance of the individual. In Many lands the individual is looked upon As chattel for the government but in this great United states the opposite is True. Government is the servant of the people. Sometimes even in this wonderful nation those who hold Public office get to thinking that they Are above the people they serve. But not for Long.
