Evolution of Labor

Labor Day was once only a holiday to celebrate the efforts of our nation’s hardest working citizens. Today, it symbolizes much more – like the start of back-to-school season and a time for many to put summer behind them and get back to work. And, just as the meaning of this holiday has evolved over the years, so has our nation’s workforce. These days, nearly 70% of workers use a computer every day and information technology continues to grow as an industry.

Solid infographic. It’s easy for folks to forget the incredible sacrifices and bitter fight that generations before us had to do to secure some very basic rights at work, like the common weekend off, mandatory breaks, the 8-hour work day, a living wage, a minimum wage, no child labor, safer working conditions, etc.

With all the union busting going on, that could all go the way of the dinosaur.
