All About Work’s Summer Break

So far, summer in my part of the world has been unseasonably hot. So All About Work is going to take a couple of weeks off, and I’m going to find some shade to sit in and to kick back for a while. Wherever you are, enjoy the weather!!

All About Work will be active again around the second week of September, which means that I won’t be making my usual post about Labour Day. Based on what’s happened in past years, I’m sure that Labour Day will generate more than enough news to reflect on when I return. But in the meantime,  I hope All About Work‘s readers will remember that work and organizations are newsworthy and important not just on Labour Day, but all year long. See you in September!
