Muskegon's Labor Day Parade - Workers of Muskegon Unite

Labor Day is rapidly approaching.  Hard to believe that the "End of Summer" is unofficially here, but it is and Muskegon's workers are planning a parade to honor those who work to keep the economy moving and who work to make sure that workers are treated fairly.

Labor Day dates back as far as 1882 as a machinist Matthew Maguire forst proposed the holiday while serving at the Central Labor Union Secretary of New York.  Today, it's still a vital reminder of the work done by so many.

In Muskegon - you'll find a great parade happening.  You'll find internationals and labor unions marching, as will local non profits, politicians and many other partners of the United Way who is helping to organize the event.  The parade gets underway at 11am September 5th and is expected to  be complete by 12:30 with a fun event planned in Hackley Park after the parade.

You'll find food from Greek Tony's, plenty of activities for the kids with 7 bounce houses, sno cones, magic shows, balloons, face painting, arts and crafts and more!  Refreshments for adults as well.

The parade begins at the intersection of 4th and Western and ends up in Hackley Park.  I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes with Jana Routt and Waltrer Christofferson to learn a little more about the event as well as her role in working with the labor unions in the area with the United Way.  Take a listen to our chat below.

Our workers remain the backbone of our economy.  Those who continue to strive to get the job done and do what it takes for their bottom line as well as the countries!  It's important to stop and be thankful for our well as the work.  Labor Day is a reminder of workers doing their part to make sure the strength, prosperity and well-being of the country is protected.  Thanks to Jana for finding a few minutes to talk about the parade and thanks to to all the workers out there who enjoy Labor Day.  To learn more about the United Way of the Lakeshore, click on their image below
