Traditionally, Labor Day is a harbinger of fall. After a short camping and hiking trip to Southwestern Minnesota earlier last week, we spent this weekend preparing the yard, taking down our small pool, which helped get us through a hot summer in quarantine, and washing windows – and not one minute too soon. Today, it’s cool and gloomy outside.
According to the US Department of Labor, Labor Day was “dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
This year, more than any other in recent history, so many workers have sacrificed their time, energy and health to keep the rest of us fed, secure, cared for and so much more. I am grateful to have been able to work from the comfort of my home with the help of reliable internet and electricity, enjoy some outdoor dining and receive health care as needed.
So this year’s Labor Day, I celebrate and honor especially those essential workers who contributed to making that happen. And at Moncur Consulting, we recommit to continuing to reimburse our freelance team members at rates that value their education, expertise, diligence and dedication to producing outstanding work for us.
