It's the unofficial end of the summer film season, as well as the occasion for numerous special sales events. It's the last day of the year you can wear white clothes, and the final opportunity for vacationers to join millions of others at the seaside. But most importantly, Labor Day (September 2) celebrates the generations of hard workers who have toiled to make this country great.
To acknowledge this, send in your favorite films featuring labor, the work place, the working class, or any other labor related topic (childbirth, perhaps, excepted). Include them in the comments section or drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for entries is Monday, August 26. We’ll be running the top five on September 1. [Shown is the trailer from Mike Judge’s 1999 comedy “Office Space”]
