HAPPY LABOR DAY!

First a bit of history courtesy of Wiki and the Department of Labor:

“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, 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 the country.

The holiday originated in Canada out of labor disputes in the 1870s, which resulted in legalized and protected union activity in 1872 in Canada. The parades held in support of Canadian organized labor led to an annual celebration in Canada. In 1882, American labor leader Peter J. McGuire witnessed one of these labor festivals in Toronto. Inspired from Canadian events in Toronto, he returned the USA, to New York and organized the first American “labor day” on September 5 of the same year.”

Here’s what it looks like out there in the United States right now (via Department of Labor).  If you have a job, be thankful, and compassionate to those who do not.

~As you all kick back and enjoy the holiday I think we should take the time to rank the 40k, Warmachine/Hordes and Fantasy nations from best to worst in their labor-relations practices in the comments. This ought to be good… To our non-American readers… GET BACK TO WORK! 🙂

    You misspelled Labour – note the ‘u’.

    No Colonials, bad Colonials. In your bed, on your rug!

      • The_Ordo_Malleus

        • benn grimm

            A.m.e.r.i.c.a.n.e.n.g.l.i.s.h……nope, that’s simply not how one spells ‘wrong’ :p

          • benn grimm

        Don’t make us come over there! Again!

        • CthulhuDawg

          How’d that turn out the first time?

          • Ross Allan

            First time was a blast! Rocked up, told the natives who was boss, settled many colonies.

            Second time was ruined by the pesky French and an insane King. Also, The East India Company switching sides didn’t help matters :p

      Manager, “Remember, there is no “i” in Team and there is no “u” in Labor. Now get back to your zero hour contact, casual work!”

      • MClay01

        There is a Me though!

        • euansmith

          Yeah, but the Me in team only applies to supervisors and above 😉

    So, let me get this right. People, who paved their way to the present situation with the blood of the natives and slaves of various color, who basically robbed the land from it’s legitimate owners, whose country represents the all the bad things too far gone capitalism and corruption has to offer now boast because of a purely communist idea…because most western countries have their equivalent days on at different time?

    Was that right? It looks like it is. 😉

    Apparently posting some historical facts was too much for this site….
