Now that my brief but illustrious furniture sales career is over, I get to enjoy a simple pleasure in life .... the 3 day holiday weekend. My condolences to those I left behind, and to those brothers here who work in retail or essential services.

happy Labor Day to everyone

I couldn't work today if I wanted to,my union brothers and sisters would tar and feather me then treat me like the red headed step child that no one liked.

Here in my neck of the woods you can work Christmas,Easter,Thanksgiving as long as you get the proper pay for the day...but to work on Labor Day is a very big No-No.

Happy Labor free Day to everyone:wave:

To clarify...not all union workers are off today in my area. Every union contract has different rules,policys and pay rates,it all depends on what union and what job you do.
We do have union police,fire and hospital workers that are working today.

I happen to be a Teamster covered under the "heavy and highway construction contract".

I worked all day today... sitting on the floor of the garage making a stable out of scrap wood for my 7 y.o. daughter's toy horses . I suck at this kind of thing but she's really looking forward to the finished product.

I watched CSI marathons and porked out all day.

I ate so much that it hurts...now I realize why it's called LABOR day :tongue:

By the way Larry, the Company I work for Employs 2 Mechanics and both of them are members of the Teamsters Union. The oportunity to receive the pay and benifits you deserve are available to you. All you have to do is look hard enough and quit bitching about other people that are making an honest living and getting paid well for it!

gosh i never thought of that,,,,hmmm. i guess i will look again for someone to pay me twice as much as now for doing the same job. on second thought i already have and there just aint alot of union mechanic openings around here. thats OK though. i need the type of employment i have anyways.
