By now, the weekend's festivities are a pleasant memory.

Football games, backyard barbecues, spending time with friends and family are great, but let's not forget the meaning of Labor Day.

It's a true and lasting testament to this country's working men and women - not labor unions, not companies or corporations.

Labor Day is when we honor people who get up every morning, roll up their sleeves, get to work and make America the greatest country in the world.
