According to Wikipedia, Labor Day is “a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.” (LINK)
This year I thought it would be fitting to send an extra thank you to all of the non-medical essential workers of our country – the cashiers, food processing factory workers, delivery people, transit workers, and more – who went out to work through this pandemic, allowing the rest of us to work from home. Honest labor, essential to our lives: THANK YOU!
(This drawing was made at the old Essex Market in NYC’s lower east side. I’ll be time traveling to the NYC of 2018 this week and exploring the old market in my Studio 1482 Armchair Travels post – look for it on my blog later this week.)
