Today marks the start of the long Labor Day weekend. The AAA thinks 39.1 million travelers nationwide will make a trip of 50 miles or more, which is a 13.3% drop from last year. Why? Because Labor Day is occurring later than usual (and in other states, their school years start in August) and that probably means many people are staycationing! The later Labor Day is a mixed blessing: One retail worker told the NY Times, "My personal reaction is, it’s more time to enjoy summer. But my business reaction is that it will make the fall tough," while a high schooler said, "Very few people want to go back to school. It gives us more time to dread it." Are you staycationing (the West Indian American Day Parade is on Monday!) or really vacationing? And remember, you can wear white after Labor Day (or so we hear).
