Train Trip Terminated, Now Back to Work
Originally Labor Day was a time to recognize the labor movement and organized labor. Many countries throughout the world have a day designated as Labour Day. Most workers would prefer to just forget about work and have a time of recreation, but occasionally one might find organized rallies and political or union events held in conjunction with Labor Day.
Here on Tossing It Out it will be business as usual. We had an entire week devoted to (or at least with allusion to) trains. This past Monday Blog Boggled continued looking at the topic raised on Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog about blog content and comments. The remainder of the week was devoted to public transportation with a particular focus on trains and light rail.
Upcoming this week the theme will be work in honor of Labor Day. Monday's Blog Boggled will be asking the questions of how much work you put into blogging and is blogging work? Then on Tuesday we will continue with a Tossing It Out Tuesday look at some of the bad habits that some of us need to get rid of in order to work more effectively. Wednesday will be a memoir reflection about working.
Thursday's Debate Day topic will consider what the future of work and jobs looks like here in North America as well as the rest of the world. Finally, on Friday, I will tell you a little story about Kermit the Carny. Hope you will stay with me in the countdown to the one year anniversary of Tossing It Out coming up the week of September 20th.
What are your Labor Day plans?
