Recently, I was contacted by our friend overseas, Tom Campbell, who does the morning show at Signal 107 in the U.K. who wanted to know why we celebrate Labor Day as a national holiday.

According to U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement and is 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. What does that mean? I don't know. Simply saying we have the day off is good enough for me.

To take it a step further, I decided to go around the building and ask if people knew the meaning of Labor Day. Pay attention Signal 107.
