Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
If you are one of the lucky government, postal, banking or financial services employees* who got the day off today, please remember to treat the people who did not with the respect and gratitude they deserve as they wait on you at the local restaurant, the Walmart or Target Store and the gas station. They are the working poor who feed your salaries every day of the year.
Ironic that Martin Luther King, Jr’s last fight was against poverty, specifically the poverty of the working poor.
Perhaps we should start leveling the playing field by giving everyone the day off.
*A special bark out to those companies that give their employees the day off and those who can’t, holiday pay. It’s a start.
