Remember "job creators"? It's been the big buzzword the last couple years. The conservatives take on the economy is that the "job creators" (businesses) are the driving force and so we have to remove anything (like pesky regulations) that stand in their way. But I say it is the workers that drive the economy because they are the ones who do the work. We should be watching out for their welfare, and if they are happy and productive and motivated then business will thrive and everyone will benefit.
Today is May Day, a day recognized world wide as a time to celebrate workers and their contribution to our world. Many jobs go unseen and unappreciated and some of those are the most important. Please take time today to show appreciation for the hardworking staff wherever you go, whether you are shopping, going out to eat, or even interacting with a government agency. Treat your coworkers, companions, and loved ones with respect and honor them for the work they do, even if they aren't getting paid for it (like many mothers - thanks Mom!:)). And don't forget to respect yourself and honor the work you do.
Happy May Day!
For Scripture says, "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain," and "The worker deserves his wages."
