Labor Day or La(bored) Day?

More like the latter, for a lot of people...

Tomorrow is Labor Day, a US federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September. The holiday originated in 1882 as the Central Labor Union (of New York City) sought to create "a day off for the working man". Congress made Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894. All fifty states have made Labor Day a state holiday. Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer.*
In the spirit of workin' for The Man, for those of you who want to quit your day job to Etsy full time, and for all of you who have jobs that make you actually work on Labor Day, this one's for you.
