Labor Day 2021

by Ashley


Get ready to put away your white pants and shoes, it’s the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day weekend. Recognized this upcoming Monday, September 6, Labor Day was first written into law as a national holiday in 1894. Here are some little-known Labor Day facts.

    • President Grover Cleveland signed a bill to legally recognize Labor Day in 1894 giving only federal workers the day off. What a bummer! In the late 1930’s union workers organized strikes to make sure the laboring classes were included in recognizing Labor Day as well.

    • Some confuse Labor Day – the day we celebrate and recognize the sacrifices and sweat American workers made and continue to make to build this country, with Memorial Day – the day we recognize those soldiers that died while in active duty or Veteran’s Day – a day to honor those that served in the military past and presently. Labor Day is about the American working class, #notallheroeswearcapes. 

    • Labor Day is always the first Monday in September. It can be on the 1st-7th. Canada also recognizes Labor Day on the first Monday of September, but they spell it fancier, Labour Day. Well played Canada!

    • Many Fall sports start their first games during Labor Day weekend or the following week. Yes, you can officially drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it is football season. 

Here are some local events celebrating you, the American worker! And p.s. don’t worry about putting away the white pants and shoes if you don’t want to!

  • Sept 6 Ligonier Marshmallow Festival

  • Sept 6 Elkhart Labor Day Parade 11am

Marketing Consultant or a New Hire?

For those in the HR field, you might be starting to see your company going through a carousel of employees in your department. Otherwise known as “high turnover.” It can be brutal in the marketing world but not every company or agency operates this way. Companies might think that if they get a marketing consultant it will be a better idea than risking going through the “revolving door of ideas” theory. Where companies hire candidates and love their ideas but over time they are too expensive so they replace them for someone at a lower salary. Or companies hire a candidate that didn’t meet their expectations and had to replace them shortly after. Get digital marketing consulting advice now.
