Happy Labour Day

This Monday, September 3 is Labour Day, which is not only a chance to enjoy a day off from work, but also a chance to celebrate workers and the great social and economic achievements of the labour movement, from the eight-hour work day to a $15 minimum wage.

This holiday Monday, let’s remember the contributions of workers before us while recognizing our own contributions to society and the economy through our important work at this public institution of higher education.

Wishing you all a wonderful Labour Day long weekend and hoping it will launch you into an even better term ahead.
