Today I wanted to take time out to celebrate the many achievements
of our American workforce and do a little American dreaming...
Wishin' and Hopin' on Labor Day
©2012 Susan Noyes Anderson
If I had my wish on Labor Day,
the jobs that have been sent away
to other countries would return
so more Americans could earn.
If I could have my wish today,
the unions would be swept away
unless they used their power for good
the way most workers wish they would.
If my wish could come true today,
people would have the means to pay
for needed things they can't afford.
Indebtedness brings no reward.
Today I wish for work to do
for every man and woman who
are trying hard to live their dreams
but cannot get ahead, it seems.
May this year bring folks everywhere
the jobs they need and pay that's fair
without regard to sex or race.
A smile would light up every face.
I know, it's pie in the sky stuff, but that's what dreams are made of.
Especially American dreams!
HAPPY LABOR DAY!!
