A Letter To The Laborers


Reflecting on Labor Day

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, as a tribute to the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength and prosperity. 140 years later, to many of us Labor Day looks like long weekends with parades, barbecue grills and laughter amongst family and friends.

For TOCCI, Labor Day is an opportunity to celebrate our people, our trade partners, the work that they do, and all that they create. Today’s socio-economic conditions pose many threats to the workforce, particularly within the construction industry. Between labor shortages, rising material costs, sky-high mortgage and loan rates it’s not getting easier out there. And yet we prevail. We continue to build.

We couldn’t do that without our boots on the ground. The men and women on-site every day. Those quite literally in the trenches, laying the foundations, responsible for the rise of these structures.

So, here’s to them! We praise your grit and skill. We appreciate your hard work and tenacity. We applaud your craftsmanship.
