Labor Day Is a federal holiday falling on the first Monday in September, and celebrating the achievements of American workers. 

However, some in the #USA will be working today. They are healthcare workers, public safety officers, journalists, and those working in the field harvesting the food we eat or restocking the aisles at Walmart, Target, Publix, Kroger, and Albertsons which are open along with CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens. On-demand services such as Postmates, Grubhub, UberEats, and DoorDash will deliver orders on Monday for participating local and national restaurants.

You Have No Right to Complain. Shut up and begin to accept our Education, Social Restrictions, and version of Justice, or else.

Meanwhile, another one testifying. Is he expected to say the former guy is nothing but a freaking fraud and a liar?
