The ‘don’t wear white after Labor Day’ rule is long gone according to local stylist
@adreeslatif They earn $6 a day for their labor. Many were violent offenders - armed robberies and assaults were common convictions - but none were in prison for homicide or sexual crimes 3/7
This Labor Day, let’s thank all those who've kept our country going this year—nurses, teachers, delivery drivers, food service workers, and many more. We can honor them by building our system back even better—so that essential workers are treated like it, pandemic or not.
This Labor Day I think of those toiling to keep us safe and make our world less broken. I think of “essential workers” whose wages and benefits do not equal the value they provide or risks they take. Our economy doesn’t recognize or reward labor enough. We can, must do better.
It might be Labor Day weekend, but let’s all remember that we're still in the middle of a pandemic. Wear a mask, practice social distancing, and follow the experts. It’ll save lives.
Just a friendly reminder for the weekend: No white after Labor Day, and no old, white racist men after the midterms. Get out and vote.
If you appreciate 40-hour work weeks, safe working conditions, higher wages, weekends, and a day off today—thank the labor movement. #LaborDay
