Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers and is always observed on the first Monday of September. It began in the late 1800’s, when labor activists lobbied for a federal holiday to acknowledge the many contributions workers have made to America’s workforce.
While media usually highlights the negative stories about the community, today we are publishing an actual letter from a non-Jewish manager recognizing the positive work environment her Hasidic boss has created in a midsized company that he founded:
While I am incredibly grateful for my bonus (thank you!), I cannot put into words how it made me feel to tell my people about their bonuses.
Each and every one of them expressed that coming to work for this company was one of the best decisions they made. The bonus was just the icing on the cake. I sincerely thank you for giving me and continuing to give me a chance. You have allowed me to impact the lives of so many and I do not take that lightly.
We have built something pretty special and it will never be lost on me that you not only invested financially, you invested personably and spiritually in us.
Thank you again, from the bottom to my heart.
