I feel fortunate to be busy helping people achieve their real estate goals, but I had not considered how and why Labor day came into being in the United States. Labor day was established in the late 1800's as a holiday to commemorate the workers killed during Union strikes in New England. It has since become the celebratory end of Summer and a day of rest for those who labor diligently at their various positions. It was sad to hear today that the jobless rate has climbed to it's highest since 1983, making Labor day a bit more painful to those without gainful employment.
The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities to be had in America, even in these troubled times. There has not been a better era for someone to grow their own business, whether it be in real estate or any field at all. Their are plenty of opportunities out there for someone to grab hold and get out of the sticky situation they may be in at this time. I hope that all of you have a great Labor day weekend and look forward to helping you in your endeavors any way that I can!
