Fun fact – it was actually Grover Cleveland, 22nd and 24th President of the United States, who established Labor Day after a botched attempt to disassemble a railroad strike back in 1894. The holiday is now observed on the first Monday in September.
Labor Day is also considered by many to be the “unofficial” end of summer. In Cincinnati, Ohio, where THS is located, the entire city celebrates Labor Day with an enormous fireworks display on the Ohio River. It’s called Riverfest.
We also know that hospitals aren’t closed today and many of our travel nurses are hard at work. Nurses don’t have it easy. With this national nursing shortage, it’s important to think about our nurses and how our country can improve conditions for a demographic that provides roughly 90 percent of the world’s healthcare. Nurses, you are extremely appreciated.
Happy Labor Day! Life savers aren’t privy to labor-less Labor Days, so to you we say, #NurseOn.
