It’s Labor Day!
A celebration of American workers. President Grover
Cleveland signed it into law, in June 1894, after years of labor strikes and
unrest. According to History.com, at the height of the industrial revolution,
“the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks”.
As I read this article, my first impression was that work
hasn’t changed much since 1894. We Americans work very hard and often very long
hours. Even during the pandemic while working from home, we work many hours. Think
about moms, they don’t have a “job”, but they work harder than anybody!
On this Labor Day, let’s remember to give ourselves a rest,
or enjoy time with our families, or do something that we love. Let’s celebrate
our own selves and our work achievements.
The Great Resignation.
If you haven’t heard of The Great Resignation, according to
this Inc.com article, 11.5 million workers have quit their jobs in
during April, May, and June of 2021. When so many of us are working longer
hours and doing it during a deadly pandemic, it seems it was almost inevitable
that many people left their jobs.
What The Great Resignation is at the core, change. Since March
2020 we have seen huge changes in the way we work, and in who we work for. We
have adapted to all the changes and it’s important that we give ourselves credit
for making the changes or rolling with the changes as they were presented to
We can’t know if we are in the beginning, middle, or end of the
big changes, and that’s okay. We can continue to do our best, do what’s right
for us and our families.
Change is Hard.
It’s true, change is hard, and in change, there is also
opportunity. There is opportunity to reshape our lives, to shift our priorities,
to make our work lives work better for us. There is opportunity to reshape how
companies treat their employees. There is opportunity to reshape how leaders
lead. There is so much opportunity all this change. Let’s use this energy to our
Labor Day is interesting this year. Let’s rest, enjoy time
with our families, spend time doing what we love.
