Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job. In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.  These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, such as the Labor Day holiday, and reducing the workweek to just six days. 

These early organizers clearly won since the most recent data show that the average person working in manufacturing is employed for a bit over 40 hours a week and most people work only five days a week. 

Surprisingly, many politicians and business owners were in favor of giving workers more time off. That is because workers who had no free time were not able to spend their wages on traveling, entertainment, or dining out.   

As the U.S. economy expanded beyond farming and basic manufacturing in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it became important for businesses to find consumers interested in buying the products and services being produced in ever greater amounts.   Shortening the workweek was one way of turning the working class into the consuming class.  

So, to celebrate the month of September and the affection for Laboring, I have a special announcement to make I will be Laboring, but for a very special reason.   

My team and I are addicted to helping you and those you know buy or sell the place they call home. In fact, it is a race to help as many as possible so we can GIVE more away.   

A CORE philosophy at our company is ‘the size of the hole you give thru is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive thru’.  Therefore, our Mission is to Go Serve Big!!!  Serve you, serve those you refer to us, and of course, serve a very worthy cause… the great work being done at Texas Children’s Hospital. 

Each month I do my best to remind you that YOUR referrals help the kids…    Through our Go Serve Big mission, we are on a mission to raise 5,000 for Children’s Hospital by donating a portion of our income from home sales to them.  As you know Texas Childrens Hospital does a tremendous job of helping kids fight through and survive nasty life-threatening diseases like Cancers, Leukemia, and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma: stuff that many times rob the life right out of young people. They also lead the way in the early diagnosis of autism and recovering from spinal cord injury. 

As the areas leading non-profit, they depend on sponsorships and donations to continue their leading-edge care and keep family’s expenses to a minimum.  So, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS… 

Anyone you know considering buying or selling a home please refer them over to my real estate sales team.  Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, but a very worthy cause will benefit as well.  Simply call me direct at 281-900-9663 or forward my number.    

As you will see throughout this month’s homeward bound, pictures are worth more than words. Whether it’s the smiling faces of beautiful young people gaining a chance at long life or the determined faces of our great company people working to help, we are committed to the mission of Go Serve Big!!! 

With all my appreciation.
