It’s September 2nd and Labor Day is upon us. This Federal holiday was created in the late 19th century as a response to the ongoing Labor Movement in the United States. At the time, the average worker was working in unsafe and unhealthy environments. Without any job security, benefits or protections for their hard work, they often worked long hours with very little wages earned. Today, American workers are able work while having labor protections, laws and rights.
For many, today means an extended weekend and more time spent with the family. Nurses 24/7 would like to extend its gratitude to all the nurses, physicians, clinicians and hospital staff that provide care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to patients and their families. Today, we proudly celebrate the hard work of the millions of Americans serving the health care industry across the country.
