House Majority Shitkicker Eric Cantor (R) has absolutely no idea what Labor Day is all about.
No, today is not the day we celebrate those who took a risk with other people’s money and lives to achieve their great Success of owning a hedge fund. This is not the day we celebrate the success of the vulture capitalists who load workers up with debt and raid their pensions.
The other 364 days of the year are reserved for celebrating the arrogant genius of the masters of the universe. Nearly every day is Hedge Fund Manager’s Day in America.
Labor Day is for celebrating organized labor (read: unions). Congress declared Labor Day a national holiday following the deaths of workers during the Pullman Strike. It was signed into law by President Grover Cleveland.
Eric Cantor’s perversion of history is a spit in the face of people who actually work for a living.
