Labor Day was once only a holiday to celebrate the efforts of our nation’s hardest working citizens. Today, it symbolizes much more – like the start of back-to-school season and a time for many to put summer behind them and get back to work. And, just as the meaning of this holiday has evolved over the years, so has our nation’s workforce. These days, nearly 70% of workers use a computer every day and information technology continues to grow as an industry.
Skateboarding has had one of the most unique and and turbulent histories of any sport (or hobby) in the history of North America.
The sport has gone from grass root home-made boards, to being one of the most popular sports in the USA, only to crash into oblivion before resurfacing as a past time for punks and kids up to no good. Despite the changing point of view of popular opinion, the sport has held a core of devotees who kept the sport alive when it seemed all but forgotten.
