Where did August go? Fall is almost here and now it warms up. 🙂 It is nice to see bright blue skies instead of gloom, so I can’t complain too hard. The girls started school this week, and we are all looking forward to a long holiday weekend.
In celebration of Labor Day, I found this great infographic that I wanted to share with you. We give much of our lives to work, and it makes sense to occasionally step back and evaulate our work/life balance. I’m grateful that my work fulfills me and allows me to help others become more financially literate so they can live on their terms. I hope your work fulfills you as well and celebrate your hard work with a great weekend!

I still can't believe that half of the U.S. lives on less than 46K per year. I think my perception has skewed over the years!
Great infographic - I never knew the origins of your Labour Day (I'm from the UK), so that was very interesting. And the bit about commuting reminded me of one of the main reasons I'm so happy I've just retired - I commuted around 20 miles each way for most of my working life and did lots of driving during the working day, ploughing up and down motorways, and I do NOT miss that one jot!
Enjoy your holiday :)
Have an awesome weekend Shannon :)
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
Much like Tony, the majority of the info does not relate to me at all...which is a good thing :)
The one thing I am somewhat surprised about is that fact that many of your commenters find 46,000.00 to be low. Am I reading that correctly?
I make a little less than 15,000.00 a year and that's in a GOOD year! However, I live like a King and follow my own path. Maybe it's because I live in Canada?
Thanks again for an enjoyable read and take care. All the best and enjoy the long weekend :)
I worry about really important stuff. :p
