Special Labor Day edition of Blawg Review covers history of American labor

Blawg Review salutes Labor DayLabor Day here in the United States is associated far more with back-to-school sales, political campaigning, and backyard barbecues than it is with its original purpose--a day to honor workers.

This week's Blawg Review, the weekly review of legal blogging, pays homage to the roots of Labor Day in an epic style befitting its theme. Host George Lenard, an employment lawyer who publishes the eponymous George's Employment Blawg, recounts the history of American labor, weaving in a week's worth of blog posts together with personal anecdotes, archival images, and videos, and presents it in 14 parts in Blawg Review #124.

This opus magnum, meticulously assembled and imaginatively constructed, is a true labor of love. It is also perhaps the best presentation of Blawg Review of all time.

Don't miss it.
