Labor Day?

We celebrate it by taking a day off from work?

What gives?

Oh, yeah-I forgot, government loves and understands us better than our employer, who typically has face to face contact with us on a daily basis.

So government lays the heavy hand of enforcement (read the power of the gun) on your employer, mandating the employer provide a day off with pay; something for nothing!

On the surface, given our personal corruption, we are favorably disposed to the idea..

But, upon reflection, we ought to recognize, “…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…”.

Somebody has to pay.

First off, your employer.

Who passes it on to the consumer.

And YOU are a consumer, so you pay!

On top of that, because Govt. intervened on your behalf the”bureaurats” who have to be paid for their involvement; hence, and increase in your taxes!

ALWAYS remember the simple axiom,: There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.

Somebody has to pay, and since it typically isn’t the politician; guess who foots the bill?

You do!

Hence, “…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…”

I never thought about Labor Day in that light - but you make a great point!
