Reagan’s take on Labor Day

Labor Day celebrated on Monday, Sept 5

“Each year, at summer’s end, we pause to honor working men and women

Their labor, resourcefulness, and devotion to family and country have forged the freest, most prosperous nation the world has ever known

In the pursuit of that American dream, every generation has proven anew the dignity of work and of working people,”

Labor Day provides all of us with an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of work not simply as an economic necessity

But as an expression of deeper human qualities

We can be truly grateful that God has blessed our nation with an abundance which has permitted us to produce a vast quantity of goods for people around the world

We rejoice in the fact that more of our citizens are working than ever before and that we continue to be a land of hope, energy, and opportunity,”
