Please Tip Time-And-A-Half On Labor Day—We Should Respect Our Fellow Working People
Labor Day is Monday, September 7. Here is a Texas Liberal post on the history of Labor Day with links to other facts about Labor Day.
Please remember that someone working on Labor Day is working a holiday. If you make use of the services of a waiter or a cab driver or anyone how normally gets a tip, please consider a tip at a time-and-a-half rate from what you would normally offer. If you normally tip 20%, tip 30% for the holiday.
People who work a holiday should get paid time-and-a-half. This is the rate of pay you would expect for working a holiday. If you are not paid that rate, please do not take out your frustration with this fact on a fellow working person.
Please treat working people with respect. Please do so all the time, but please be certain to do so on Labor Day and over Labor Day weekend. How we treat other working people is a measure of the extent to which we respect ourselves.
