    Here's to all the working men and women of this great country. If you are working today (like me), I hope the only flames you see are coming from your grill. With this rotten weather we are having around Chicagoland, looks like I wont even bother cooking outside today.

    Default one more thing....

    Labor day is simple for me, but it's meaning has become unclear.
    It is about the workers. It is about the working conditions in your firehouses and departments. This applies whether you are paid or volunteer. It also is a time to recognize that while the labor force is the backbone of any service, they are really dysfunctional without clear direction and management.
    It is about both parties working in a common goal to make the fire service more productive. The best workplaces have the interests of their employees as the common goal of labor and management. It is not about the city or town and the contact or bargaining agreement over there, but what it is really about is the bridge in the middle.

    Default LABOR MANAGEMENT

    Well said. Its too bad that BOTH sides dont see the benefit of working with each other instead against each other. Our President made a speech today about labor being the backbone of our nation. Now lets see if actions speak louder then words.
