Labor Day is coming up, and it’s a great time for us to honor labor workers. The labor movement has played an important role in shaping America over the years – from advocating for better wages and working conditions to fighting against child labor. It’s hard to imagine what our country would be like without labor unions! This Labor Day, we want you to think about your favorite worker and how they have helped shape America into the place that it is today. We’ve come up with three ways you can celebrate them on this day:
Remembering Those Laborers Who Paved the Way
America’s labor movement began with the Industrial Revolution when many Americans flocked to cities to find work in factories. The labor movement is a reminder of the rights our predecessors fought hard for, and as we celebrate labor day this September it’s important to remember those who paved the way.
You can honor those who paved the way by educating yourself about labor history and honoring your favorite worker on labor day. Visit a local labor museum, labor history site or explore labor unions to learn more about labor’s past.
Honoring Your Favorite Worker
Not all workers get the day off, but we can still commemorate labor day in our own special way. You can find ways to celebrate your favorite worker/s and thank them for their hard work and dedication in your community.
One example is to write a letter to your favorite worker, thanking them for their hard work and sacrifices. Taking the time to write a letter is a labor of love. If you don’t want to take the time, but still want to honor your favorite worker, you can always buy them an ice cream cone or send them flowers! You could also ask their supervisor for something small and special that they would like in recognition of all of their hard work this year.
Who doesn’t like food? Another popular idea is to make a favorite breakfast or lunch item , or even provide take out to your favorite person or local company. Small businesses especially love this idea. It’s a way of showing gratitude with the least amount of effort, and also enjoying a meal together.
What about doing labor related chores for a family member? Take over the chores for your favorite worker. Clean the bathroom, do the dishes, take out the trash, make a meal, or give them an at home pedicure. All these ideas can be done without breaking much sweat, but still show appreciation for all they do!
Personalized Occupation Ornaments to Honor Workers
If you’re looking for a labor day gift that the recipient will cherish year-round, opt for a personalized occupation ornament! Teachers, moms, grandparents and dads alike will love this labor day present . At Holiday Traditions, we value our workers. That is why we have a variety of personalized occupational ornament options to choose from such as retail, cosmetology, plumbing, electrical, education and many more. Add their name, business name and a date for that extra special touch! Place your gift somewhere they will see it first, such as next to their bed, on their office desk or next to their favorite morning beverage.
No matter what way you choose to celebrate Labor Day this September, it is important to recognize the labor movement and think about all of those who have come before us. It is an opportunity for us to reflect on how far we’ve come as Americans and what more we can do to continue to improve our working environment and rights in the future.
