Republicans cannot celebrate Labor Day in Wisconsin

Hope this blows up like a dollar watch.


WAUSAU (WAOW) — Labor Day parade organizers confirm that no Republicans will be allowed to participate in this year’s Labor Day Parade.

Council president Randy Radtke says they choose not to invite elected officials who have “openly attacked worker’s rights” or did nothing when state public workers lost most of their right to collectively bargain.

The parade is sponsored by the Marathon County Labor Council. A Wausau city spokeswoman said the city does not contribute any money to the parade.

Rep. Sean Duffy’s chief of staff, Brandon Moody, released a statement to Newsline 9:

“Having walked in this parade in past years, Congressman Duffy was hoping that for a moment, we could set our differences aside and simply have some fun in a family-friendly event.”

eh, I'd be more outraged if Labor Day wasn't basically a quasi-political left-wing celebration of labor unions.

I know it isn't seen that way in this country (outside of Wausau, WI) where we've basically just taken it as a random "oh cool, I get the day off" and the roots of the holiday are no longer widely observed. (but that is itself basically a reaffirmation of how useless the holiday is)

I'm not opposed to having X days of holidays per year, whatever X is for you, but we ought to get rid of labor day and observe something more meaningful, say in the first few months of the year where there is a long drought of holidays. We have plenty of holidays this time of the year.

One option is to get rid of labor day and start celebrating Rick Stanzi's birthday, September 3rd. That doesn't spread out the holidays any better but as we can tell so far in preseason it is a date that should be observed at the highest level.

We like to make fun other other countries that give 6 weeks off, but many people who have studied the issue say that after taking a real long 2 week or a full month vacation they come back fired up and ready to work, while we are more burned out and tend to fart around at work more. So, don't get me wrong on that.

But on national holidays, most of them are crammed into the last half of the year. We need to shift a holiday out of the 2nd half, and into maybe February or March.

Independence Day is more of a Republican holiday anyway. Let the commies have Labor Day.

You reap what you sow. If Republicans get butt hurt about this, they ought to consider that their actions have consequences. Period.

Yeah, next time they want to make a major decision maybe they'll consider parade invitations. They might reconsider, then.
