In case you are not sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around, I wonder why it is named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day.  After all, we know what Labor means.  And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.   

Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.

In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.  

These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, such as the Labor Day holiday, and reducing the workweek to just six days.

These early organizers clearly won since the most recent data show that the average person working in manufacturing is employed for a bit over 40 hours a week and most people work only five days a week.

Surprisingly, many politicians and business owners were in favor of giving workers more time off. That is because workers who had no free time were not able to spend their wages on traveling, entertainment or dining out.  

As the U.S. economy expanded beyond farming and basic manufacturing in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it became important for businesses to find consumers interested in buying the products and services being produced in ever greater amounts.   Shortening the work week was one way of turning the working class into the consuming class.  

So, to celebrate the month of September and the affection for Laboring, I have a special announcement to make I will be Laboring, but for a very special reason.  

My team and I are addicted to helping you and those you know buy or sell the place they call home. In fact, it is a race to help as many as possible so we can GIVE more away.

Why I Support A Walk On Water:

I grew up right here in Southern California. I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family having difficulties from disabilities and getting treated for that at A Walk On Water.  It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that center.  Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard-working volunteers that were Surf Enthusiast, most making their home right here in the Redlands area, all coming together for a common cause.  That cause is to guide young people (through surfing) and receives the positive effects and oceans healing powers. 
Being in the California area, a California native, I take pride in supporting in a way that I can the good work    these people do at Children's.  My team rally's around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help Children's in their quest to heal young people when they need healing.  My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients.   I have discovered that A Walk On Water shares similar commitments to their patients.  And since their services survive on sponsorships and donations we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.
