What comes to mind when you think of Labor Day? Parades … picnics … family reunions … camping … giving thanks.
Aside from looking forward to a long weekend, a day off from work or a family picnic, do you know why we celebrate Labor Day? This day’s origins span from a time in the late 1800s when building our country’s economic growth and prosperity were of utmost importance. It was felt that celebrating the American workforce would contribute to our country’s well-being and promote the nation’s strength.
At VA, we take this opportunity to pay tribute to the dedicated people who care for our nation’s Veterans. Let’s take the time to acknowledge those who sacrificed and fought for our freedom.
This Labor Day, let’s celebrate the men and women who care for our Veterans. If you are a hiring manager, consider hiring Veterans whose many skills include leadership and teamwork. If you are contemplating a job change, think about a career giving back to those who gave so much for our country.
