Each year, Americans celebrate Labor Day as a national holiday to honor working people. This year, however, is less a time for celebration and more a time for reflection and action on current economic turmoil and hardships experienced by workers and their families.

For Catholics, it is also an opportunity to recall the traditional teaching of the church on dignity of work and the rights of workers.
