The Laborer and the Employer: Finding themselves

in the same Elevator (going up?)

CSI on Labor Day Celebration and Grand Immigration Seminar

Every 1st Monday of September, the U.S. celebrates Labor Day in honor of the American Workers and the labor movement.

During the Industrial revolution in the late 1800’s, an average American would work 12-hour days for seven days a week in order to make ends meet. Employers looking for cheaper and practical workers resorted to Child Labor; and this became prominent since such laws were not strongly enforced that time.

Long hours and terrible working conditions such as child labor, paved the way to the formation of American unions who voiced out their demands for better working conditions . On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers marched from city hall to Union Square in New York City, bringing forth the first-ever Labor Day parade. Participants took unpaid day-off’s to honor the American workers, as well as for them to address their issues with employers.

By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of the workers, and on June 28 of the same year, the congress passed an act wherein the first Monday of September of each year will be dedicated to celebrating the glory of workers.

At present, we are just treating this holiday as a day-off from work; but tracing back the history of what made it “special” leads us to realize the importance of human resources in our society and the world, the cycle of economic circumstances, and the adaptations that workers and employers alike undertake in order to survive.

Opportune enough, CSI, along with some law offices is hosting another Grand Seminar this month–“Immigration Today: Adapting to Change” – to be held at our Glendale Branch Office on September 18 and 26, 2009.

This is in continuation of our marathon of informative seminars on EMPLOYMENT and IMMIGRATION. Incidentally and as always, the seminar will be free of charge for the participants.

If you are an interested applicant, we can also give you a FREE consultation to assess your qualifications to suit a specific job opening. Thus, do not forget to bring your resume and passport.

Please call CSI through the details below to make a reservation for you, your family and friends.

CSI will assist you on your placement needs and direct you to immigration experts and lawyers for your employment based applications.

It is not much anymore a case of the dog-eat-dog society, today. Everyone seems to be working on compromises, thus everyone has a share of everything – of benefits and sacrifices.

Crises make the “fall”, hope yields to chance, actions initiate change; and determination makes one invincible.
