Every day is Labor Day, unless you're a lazy slug. But you know why we get the official, gummint-approved Labor Day at the end of summer instead of late Spring?
It's 'cos we're not commies. (The Canuckiphalistanians took the same approach, by the way.) And/or because you don't want to get the chaps down at the mill all riled up just as the weather's getting nice; better you should wait until autumn looms, with winter not far behind. They'll come back to the forge when the snow flies, won't they?
I guess that worked when we still had forges in this country. Kind of.
