This week’s Monday Poll participants were in a grateful mood — grateful for a day off to spend with family and friends, and grateful to the labor movement for creating the end-of-summer holiday appropriately called Labor Day.
Spirits were light, and so were our queries and this week’s turnout of about 100 respondents. We’ll get back to more serious matters in next week’s poll.

With family or friends 87%
Working and getting paid overtime 3%
Working because I have little else to do 10%
2) My favorite food to throw on the grill will be ....
Hot dogs 16%
All of the above (it’s a holiday) 24%
3) At least give the labor movement — which isn’t embraced by everyone these days — credit for creating this holiday.
