94,391,000 Not In Labor Force
If you are one of those who accepts everything you hear from the ‘talking heads’ within the mainstream news media, you will probably think (believe) that the economy is great and all is well in America. But did you know that more than 94 million people are not in the labor force, and the participation rate (people in the civilian noninstitutionalized population, age 16 or older, who are either working or actively seeking work) is barely 62%?

The unofficial end of summer
Labor day for most Americans is celebrated as the unofficial end of summer. After this holiday weekend the mindset changes to the rapidly approaching Fall/Winter season. For those who are preparedness-minded, let this be a motivator to get what you need done (especially outdoors) before the winter sets in (especially true for the ‘northerners’).

For me, this upcoming time of year always has an affect on my mindset. To ‘get ready’, to ‘hunker down’, to check my supplies. It’s a psychological thing, I know, but it does motivate me further to get my ass in gear.

 
Prepare
There are many reasons to prepare or be prepared. Being labor day, let it be a reminder that your job (your spouses job), your income, the economy (the real economy) could be trashed in the blink of an eye. You never know. In addition, let the current Fall season motivate you to get ready. I have a feeling that the next 4 months are going to be historical…
