I beleive we live in a time when so many Americans do not know the true history of our country! The sacrifice of so many to make America the greatest country ever! We are such a spoiled people now, and have been for years. Many do not know what physical labor is. Many do not work. I know there are many Americans that cannot work because of various reasons. BUT! overall we have become a lazy nation and and shows so painfully throughout our nation, which is going down the tubes. We live in a time when the government sends out money to people that do not deserve it. We are an embarrassment to those who have gone before us. I started working when I was 8, I am 66 and still going strong and working. I pray to my LORD that I will be able to work until He calls me home. We need Biblical Pastors in America. My wife Sharon is also 66 and works full-time as an RN. We need nurses in America! My Grandpa Caraway, who farmed until he was 86, told me told me that he would rather ‘wear out that rust out.’ When a nation becomes lazy, it fails, no work ethic. I LOVE TO WORK! IT IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL!
Why Do We Celebrate Labor Day?
Labor Day, an annual celebration of workers and their achievements, originated during one of American labor history’s most dismal chapters.
In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living. Despite restrictions in some states, children as young as 5 or 6 toiled in mills, factories and mines across the country, earning a fraction of their adult counterparts’ wages.
