World War II changed the face of labor by having women work in factories. But that's not just a phenomenon in the US. A lot of our allies in Australia and in Great Britain had the same campaigns like Rosie the Riveter. The picture on the left is from the Australian campaign to get women into the labor force. The one of the right is from the British campaign. And apparently the Canadians have their "Labour Day" on the 3rd too! There's still a lot of issues to cover like equal pay for equal work but women have come a long way since those early days around the globe.

So this labor day don't forget to honor your grandmothers and mothers who have raised you and held a job at the same time.
