Labor Day in Telluride

Labor Day in Telluride

Labor1 Labor Day in Telluride means the end of the annual Telluride Film Festival. Elsewhere it's a four-day weekend that marks the end of Summer.

Designated a holiday since 1884, Labor Day was instituted to celebrate the contributions of labor to the national welfare of the U.S. In the current climate of attacks on organized labor, may I suggest it is appropriate to take a moment today to think about how much American labor has contributed to the American Dream. As in every other area of American society there have been abuses and excesses on the part of labor, but there is also so much to be proud of. Despite the current anti-labor rhetoric, the American middle class will only continue to decline if we do not honor honest labor.

Happy Labor Day.
