Why do we still celebrate Labor Day?

    I mean don't they have drugs and epidurals and stuff for the pain, now?

    How tough can it be?

    Heck, don't we have Mothers' Day, too?

    It just doesn't seem fair. Yeah, there's Fathers' Day. But don't guys deserve more than some loud neck tie that was picked out by a 6-year-old?

    After all, wasn't the guys that made the whole thing possible.

    Dog, it's not .... ah, never mind.

    Why not propose celebrating Fertilization Day then? Don't just gripe, make a difference!

    Perhaps it could be combined with Festivus.

    I mean, don't they already have a pole?

    9.6 percent of American adults aren't celebrating anything on Monday.

    I was going to say with unemployment so high, doesn't a good number of the American workforce already have the day off.

    You have to spell it correctly to celebrate it.

    Labour Day. :)

    Maybe they should move the holiday to Sept. 11 and make Labor Day May 1, like the rest of the world.

    So we know when to stop wearing white pants.

    If you didn't have Labor Day how would you know when lake/beach/swimming pool season ends?

    We could celebrate Billion-Dollar Corporations Day, where instead of a paid holiday off, everyone gets to work 24 hours with no breaks, no benefits, wages cut by 90%, then at the end of the day they go and outsource your job to Bangladesh anyway.
