WORK, REST, AND SOLIDARITY

For many people, Labor Day more or less marks the unofficial end of summer and the start of the school year and sport activities. But in the 1880s the holiday was associated with the labor movements, trade union, and the adoption of the 8-hour work week.


Labor Day looks different this year because of the massive job losses and the blurring of work and life at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.


In his Labor Day message on September 1, Bishop Oscar Cantú addresses several concerns and challenges people are facing and offers some helpful reflections and suggestions.

Have a safe and good Labor Day weekend!

Fr. Hao
