History of Labor Day Is Right Now – Workers Protest Overwork and Low Pay
Posted On: Sep 06, 2021
Sept. 6, 2021 | OPINION | […] In 2021, conditions workers are now protesting really reminds me of what they were protesting in the 19th century. The scale and brutality are different, but health and safety and extreme intensity of the working hours are fueling worker fatigue and rage… Now, workers everywhere are pushing out more goods and services with fewer and fewer people. Labor productivity increased, you could call it sweating, 2.3 percent in the second quarter of 2021 because output increased almost 8% (7.9) percent while hours worked only increased 5.5 percent….
