"House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) on Monday mistakenly described Labor Day as a celebration of entrepreneurs and business owners, rather than workers.

“ 'Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success,' the conservative congressman said in a statement. 'I am committed to keeping taxes low and reducing red tape to make it easier for Virginia’s small business owners to start hiring again, create more jobs and ensure a thriving economy for the future so more people can achieve the American dream.'

"However, Labor Day actually celebrates the victories of trade and labor organizations in the United States, who fought for 8-hour work days and other standards that most Americans take for granted.

"The first Labor Day was organized by the Central Labor Union of New York City in 1882, according to the Department of Labor. Other labor organizations across the country quickly adopted the celebration."

Oh brother.   Roll Eyes  Either the man didn't do his homework or he was deliberately trying to twist a holiday to suit his own agenda.

Isn't it nice how our friends in other places wish us a happy Independence Day? I don't see many Statesians wishing other countries the same thing, except for Canada. And I think that's because Canada Day is so close to our Fourth of July.

Guilty as charged. I don't even know when their holidays are. The United States so monopolizes global culture that ID is more widely familiar.

What about Bastille Day? That's July 14, isn't it?  Huh?
