Happy Labour Day to all of my fellow Americans. Let's all take a moment today to remember the workers who died protesting unfair and dangerous working conditions so that we could not only have a day off, but be paid a living wage and have safety requirements. Let us also think about the plight of those here in this country and all over the world who still work for wages that barely keep them alive, who are forced to do dangerous things or work in dangerous conditions because it is cheaper that way for those at the top. Let us think of the children who do not go to school but work longer hours than most American adults, often in conditions we would never allow our pets to live in. Let us think about what we can do to stop the exploitation of workers everywhere! If we want to see change we are going to have to be part of the change.
And now, on to the Monday Spotlight, which, by the way, features a shop that invests in education both in its own Canada and abroad.
This week the spotlight shines on wehive, a great Etsy shop that specializes in personalized books for children. I really like the way this shop doesn't just let you put in your child's name, but also the names of friends, relatives, locations, etc for a truly customized experience. I have chosen just a few of my favourite items to give you an idea what wehive offers; visit the shop to see the rest!
When I was a little girl, I would have wanted this one! I love that you can put in your daughter's dance teacher and friends' names.
