Some celebrate Labor Day, but at the Cave we call it “Hard Labor Day” for good reason

The concept of hard  physical labor is foreign to many Americans; the hardest thing that many do is texting or playing video games. That is pathetic at best!

The people who made America great worked incredibly long hours doing back-breaking work in miserable conditions.

They built railroads and skyscrapers, they mined coal, they worked on farms, they were lumberjacks and more.

I was blessed to grow up in a time when manual labor was still very common. Others who lived during those years know what hard work is. Though today, some still do tough jobs like hanging drywall, roofing, block masons, stone-cutters, truckers, etc. most don’t any more.

So celebrating Labor Day is almost irrelevant to those who just have over-use injuries on their thumbs.

Here’s the definition of Labor Day

      “La·bor Day
      noun
      noun: Labour Day; noun: Labor Day
  1. a public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US and Canada on the first Monday in September, in many other countries on May 1.”
    So, to keep the spirit of hard physical work alive, we have “Hard Labor Day” at the Cave. Our training is tough already, but we’ll ratchet it up a little more on that day.
    Like I always say, “Only the brave train  at the Cave” !
Translate labor day to
