It’s Labor Day weekend, and across America grills are firing up, colorful crowds are gathering in support of their favorite football team, and everyone is enjoying the three-day weekend. However, Labor Day is more than just a good time; it is “dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers” according to the US Department of Labor. We see the fruits of this labor each day though the innovation by industry, healing by health care, and access to goods and services by a highly sophisticated labor force. And we are all in a better place as result. Whether your work is paid or voluntary, we at Homecare Advocate wanted to make a distinctive tribute to celebrate the 14.3 million working in health care and the 65 million caregivers who provide unpaid care to a loved one. You are part of what makes this country great, and we are proud to honor you this Labor Day.
This weekend over 400,000 people will gather along the Knoxville riverfront to celebrate the nation’s largest Labor Day fireworks display. Here’s a glimpse of last year’s festivities:
We hope that all of our readers have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. In observance of Labor Day, Lambert’s will be closed on Monday, but our 24/7 on-call service will still be there for you as we are every day of the year. Speaking of which, I want to mention a very special note of thanks to all of the people who work at Lambert’s and take care of our community. You all are compassionate and committed to serving others. You take care of our health care community and their patients’ needs, and you help keep families together, living higher quality of lives. We are so blessed to have you all on our team and honor you this weekend.
May you all have a wonderful holiday weekend. And as our Department of Labor so eloquently stated, “It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.”
