In case you are not sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around, I wonder why it is named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day.  After all, we know what Labor means.  And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring. 

 Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week. 
These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, such as the Labor Day holiday, and reducing the workweek to just six days.  These early organizers clearly won since the most recent data show that the average person working in manufacturing is employed for a bit over 40 hours a week and most people work only five days a week.

Surprisingly, many politicians and business owners were in favor of giving workers more time off. That is because workers who had no free time were not able to spend their wages on traveling, entertainment or dining out. 
As the economy expanded beyond farming and basic manufacturing in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it became important for businesses to find consumers interested in buying the products and services being produced in ever greater amounts.   Shortening the work week was one way of turning the working class into the consuming class. 
So, to celebrate the month of September and the affection for Laboring, I have a special announcement to make I will be Laboring, but for a very special reason. 

My team and I are addicted to helping you and those you know buy or sell the place they call home. In fact, it is a race to help as many as possible so we can GIVE more away. 

A CORE philosophy at our company is ‘the size of the hole you give thru is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive thru’.  Therefore, our Mission is to Go Serve Big!!!  Serve you, serve those you refer to us and of course, serve the very worthy causes… the great work being done at the Dam Youth Drop-in Center and the Mississauga Food Bank.
Each month I do my best to remind you that YOUR referrals help the Hungry and Hurt in our community. 
Through our Go Serve Big mission, we are on a mission to raise $10,000 for the Dam Youth Drop-in Center and 10,000 meals for the Mississauga Food Bank by donating to them a portion of our income from every home sales.  As you may know, the Dam does a tremendous job of helping youth to stay on track to success by providing a safe nurturing place and the Food Bank has done great work feeding the hungry in our beloved city.

As non-profit organizations, they depend on sponsorships and donations to continue their amazing services.  

Anyone you know considering buying or selling a home please refer them on over to my real estate sales team.  Not only will they benefit from our award-winning services, but TWO very worthy causes will benefit as well.  Simply call or text me direct at 416-938-1677 or forward my number on.   

We are committed to the mission of Go Serve Big!

With all my appreciation.
