Labor Day Cancelled

In what can only be described as a delicious irony, the labor day parade was cancelled in Grand Rapids.

Local unions, which have the responsibility of financing the cost of putting on the parade, simply didn't have the money this year. They couldn't come up with the necessary $25,000. Union leaders, however, promise to be back with a parade next year at a trimmed-down $10,000 cost.

According to Wikipedia, Labor Day started in the 1880's, by organizations such as the Knights of Labor and the International Workingmen's Association (which was led by Karl Marx himself).

We here are GRPundit don't mourn the loss of the labor day parade.
