Labor Day

EB896B84-7805-44EE-B438-CEECBA37200CLabor Day honors American labor and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws, and well-being of the country. Though we all seem to want to celebrate the holiday, we seem to have forgotten the value of work. It is harder to live on minimal wages than welfare. We tax income, but give exemptions for having mortgage debt/interest. How can we be economically prosperous when labor is not properly rewarded?

  1. There’s a huge gap between what the US spends in social welfare and corporate welfare. $154 billion was doled out in corporate welfare in 2016 while $71 billion was spent for the supplemental nutrition assistance program that year (food stamps). But most Americans are up in arms over the latter and not the former.
