Because of cell phones and computers, how do you get away from work on Labor Day? I just heard the trucks on my street scraping up garden refuse, so I know that some Sacramento city workers don't take off Labor Day. I suspect it's because they can earn time-and-a-half. Plus, it's an early morning job. But do you take off Labor Day? Relax with the family, go to the beach or on a hike or maybe just stay home and read a book?
I received an email this morning from an Lori Kim Polk, wishing me a happy Labor Day and suggesting that I enjoy my day off. <Waving -- hi Lori!> What day off? I have a home showing tour this morning and another in the afternoon. It's my clients' day off, not mine. Some of my associates have set up open houses today to accommodate the number of buyers who will be out looking at homes.
I'd say I work most holidays, except maybe Christmas. However, that can be the best day to buy a home. With our non-stop busy lives, I imagine most people are doing some kind of work today, but maybe not. What about you? Are you taking Labor Day off?
