Fashion Holiday Edition: Hard-Working Labor Day

01 Sep

During World War II in the Bay Area, they built Liberty ships. In Southern California, they built bomber aircraft. And where I’m from in Louisiana, they built the nimble landing craft that brought troops ashore on D-Day. Life isn’t always about pretty things. More often than not, it’s grit and grime that gets the job done.

Rosie the Riveter Portrait

In the United States, we honor the people who do the heavy lifting for hourly wages on Labor Day, the first Monday in September. The prosperity and well-being of our country relies on the strength of our workers.

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.
