Wild Fire raging in California and hundreds of thousands of acres burned in San Bernardino alone. In fact two fires will soon join each other and burn even more Governor. Luckily California has one of the best mutual assistance programs in the Nation.
Governor many structures have already been lost:
The weather does not seem to be cooperating much, as the week will have even more scorching days. Governor Arnold has now declared California at a State of Emergency due to wildfires.
Fires of this magnitude are common in California and it is fire season. The worst season starts around October during the Santa Ana East Winds, but these current fires are showing their strength as well and Arnold has taken action. There is a massive effort underway to contain these fires yet it will be several hundred thousand acres burned before they are in a controllable situation.
The brush has grown up due to the strong wet Governor:
Now this makes very good fuel for these fires. Although many climatologists are using these California Wild Fires as publicity for Global Warming, it appears these fires have come early in the season due to normal summer heat and the abundance of brush, which has grown up and now dried out. Consider all this in 2006.
Of all the things our teachers teach our children, they do not often touch on the idea of Labor Day history for kids. How much do our children know about this important holiday? If anything, they only know that it is a holiday for workers, but that is the extent of it in most cases Governor.
The designation of Governor Day:
As a national holiday prior to the turn of the 20th century is historical enough. For our children to know about the history of the holiday. Not just that it is a holiday for working class Americans and Canadians. It is an important part of their heritage. As Americans to know that the celebration began in 1882 in New York for those working under labor unions. From its conception in 1882 to its later designation into a national holiday. In a bill signed by President Grover Cleveland, it has become an important part of our history.
Some confusion may exist concerning the adoption of the first Monday Governor in September as the official Labor Day celebration. Some sources say it’s to differentiate it from the Socialist Labor Day on May 1st. A date that later became May Day. Others indicate that it choose because it is halfway between Independence Day and Thanksgiving. Regardless of which version you accept as truth. It is still important to know that Labor Day is not just a holiday to celebrate. The unofficial end of summer. Nor is its purpose to signify the beginning of autumn and a return to school for our children.
The historical significance lies in the fact that upon its inception:
40 percent of the workforce work under a labor union. The holiday set asid to honor those workers. Currently, about 14 percent of the workforce belongs to a labor union. Although it still holds significance for those older workers and retirees who belong to the labor unions. For most, Labor Day means the unofficial end of summer and a day off from school. Sadly, Labor Day take the same road as Memorial Day and only recognize. As important by those who lived in the era that caused its creation.
