The “Foundation for Economic Education” tried to get cute with some specious libertarian bullshit this Labor Day.

The guy in the picture was a manual laborer, in his youth. He eventually got a logo too.

While all the rest of you are wasting money on a made up holiday, I’m getting time and a half! #laborday #working #lol

Says the fool, unmindful that “time and a half” was a provision won by the Fair Labor Standards Act.Happy Labor Day.

Time on Jonathan Ive:

To watch him with his workmates in the holy of holies, Apple’s design lab, or on a night out is to observe a very rare esprit de corps. They love their boss, and he loves them. What the competitors don’t seem to understand is you cannot get people this smart to work this hard just for money.

While I was in the process of leaving my abusive ex-partner, I confided in my social worker (after asking at length about her confidentiality policy, which she assured me was full proof) that I had previously worked as a sex worker in a parlor. She agreed to leave this off my notes but informed that had I still been working at that time, she would have informed child protective services. When I asked why, since I was based away from my house and my children were looked after by family while I was at work, she said that “prostitution is usually indicative of other issues.” Later, speaking to a friend of mine at the brothel about this, she told me that her child had been removed from her care because her ex partner told child protective services about her job during a custody dispute. There did not need to be “other issues”; the assumption of other dysfunction and ignorance of the realities of sex work was enough that she lost her child to the state. Another friend of mine from the same parlor was threatened by her soon to be ex-husband with being outed if she obtained legal council during their separation. Rather than take the risk of losing her children and her family, she lost her house, financial stability, all her savings and everything she had worked for up to that point. Her ex-husband took everything.

On the off-chance you haven’t made your final beer run, on this, our true national high holy day, here’s a public service announcement from the folks who brought you “the weekend.”
Pre-game accordingly.

Love this ad.

The narration is pitch-perfect. The temptation to layer in douchey/wealth overtones must have been pretty big. That they focused on craftsmanship over luxury was probably dictated by the economic climate. Really dig the description of the lapel process.

Hear the sadness, too?

Keep this handy for when you get disillusioned with people. It’s a letter from the the brothers who invented the po’ boy sandwich in New Orleans in 1929, during a streetcar conductors strike. Sandwich as solidarity.
