Reflecting On Labor Day
I hope you enjoyed a relaxing Labor Day weekend. As we come off the long weekend and get back to work (Labor Day being the unofficial end of the summer season here in New England), it got me thinking about how we labor today as compared to the past. Maybe this is because of my recent trip to northern Michigan, but I keep thinking about how technology makes it easier for us to labor at things we truly enjoy.
As opposed to our recent past in the United States, labors today as very dependent on technology. Because of this, we have been able to create new economic models and entirely new economies. People are working in locations that would never be possible without technology. Even the most manual of traditional labors is benefiting from technology. It's an interesting thought to consider as we get back to work this early September day.
