Happy Labour Day – Mantralogix’s Offices are Closed this September 4th, 2017
Happy Labour Day!
This year, on September 4th, our office will be closed in observation of Canada’s Labour Day. If you have any issues and need to contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be back in the office on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017.
Here is a quick post to remind you of why September 4th is a day off and why we celebrate Labour Day across the country.
Labour Day is a special day in Canada. We celebrate not just for the day off, but in the name of organized labour, and those who fought so hard to give future generations great opportunities and equality.
Viewed as a legal holiday, Labour Day is observed throughout Canada and celebrates the contribution of organized labour to Canadian society since 1872. In the 1870s, Ottawa and Toronto saw parades and rallies in favour of organized and equal rights in advance of American ones, which came about in the 1880s and 90s.
To this day, the Canadian efforts towards employment and labour advancement are essential to the global movement of labour – and responsible for the 40 hour work weeks, and weekends we all enjoy.
From the Mighty Mantras, we hope you enjoy this year’s Labour Day and remember all the great opportunities that we have here in Canada.
This year we’ll be at the CMTS show September 25-28, 2017 at The International Centre, in Mississauga (Toronto), ON, Canada. Learn more about this exciting show here.
