In Honor of Labor Day – Photos of People at Work

Since this week’s Moody Monday falls on Labor Day, this seems like a fitting subject for the theme.  Especially when one considers what people went through back in the day before labor laws went into effect in the USA.

However, I’m not going to focus on vintage photos of Americans at work in factories, or even of official Labor Day celebrations. Rather, I want to simply focus on humans at work, no matter their location. Guess I’m not much of a patriot.

Whether these professions are honorable or so-called “dishonorable”, these people are doing what they feel they need to do to make it in this world.  I honor them today and every day.
