This Labor Day weekend, I’m enjoying rest and views in Boulder, Colorado. I am thankful for today’s short hike and the prayers at church for all who labor to receive a fair wage and to do good work and for the unemployed to find opportunities to use their gifts and talents to serve others. This is why I started Wonderbench – to play a small part in helping match job opportunities with those readying themselves to put their hand on the plow to do something good.
This year, we celebrate 140 years since that first unofficial Labor Day on Tuesday, September 5th, 1882, when approximately 20,000 workers in New York City took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Station in support of working-class Americans. Laborers are worthy of their wages. Good companies and employers have responded to the marchers’ call by offering meaningful work, paying every worker a fair wage, and providing time to rest.
This morning’s view of the Boulder Flatirons was lovely. So is the view of our clients’ teams and all organizations working together toward noble, shared purposes. So, before we all jump back into it on Tuesday, let’s enjoy some rest, lift up a collective cold one in one hand and something tasty from the grill in the other, and wish one another a Happy Labor Day!
Wonderbench is delighted to partner with Sayap Africa (SAAF) to source a 12-week marketing internship. Paulette Nonga and her team are an inspiration to us. She is uniquely gifted at bringing the best out in others and bringing people together to do good work.
This role is focused on getting the word out about Sayap Africa’s life-giving work in Cameroon and beyond. Their projects are focused on education, health, economic development, environmental stewardship, gender equality, and youth training. We’re already impressed by the early candidates, who are preparing themselves to make an amazing impact! Interested in learning more?
