With the arrival of Labor Day, I wonder if there is as much emphasis placed on the value of work as there once was.
I speak as someone raised on hard work and for whom labor is a big part of my life.
Farm kids don’t have to be taught the importance of labor. Farming is labor, from shoveling hog manure to tossing endless numbers of hay bales onto wagons. When I wanted to make money as a teen, I waited until our family’s hay was done and then called neighbors and asked if they needed help with theirs.
