I am washing my pillows. No that’s not a euphemism. Get your mind out of the gutter.

Forget Atlantic City, my dryer just paid out big! Maybe I can get comped some fabric softener!

On this #LaborDay, remember this…just because you put on chinos instead of work pants, just because you pick up a laptop instead of a mop doesn’t mean that your are not a laborer. If your job can be outsourced, you are labor. If your job can be replaced by a computer or machine, you are labor. If you are identified as a “cost” or “expense” on a corporate spreadsheet, you are labor. If your family came here through Ellis Island or more recently through JFK or LAX with the simple dream of working hard to afford a decent life in return, you are labor.
