Labor Day is just another long weekend to some and the last hurrah of the summer to others. The truth is it’s a tribute to the American workers – us!
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Labor Day “is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.”
To celebrate Labor Day, we at Business Exchange want to honor the hard work of our users and give you a peek at some of the great topics we’ve approved in the last month. For example, Workplace Safety is a key to the labor movement and just happens to be a new topic.
International business is top of mind among some BX users with the new topics on Vietnam Business, UAE Business and Dubai Business. Others are more concern with local news like North Carolina Business and Washington State Real Estate. For everyone concerned with getting hit hard next April, Business Taxes will keep you up on the latest.
Industry news can be found in Logistics Industry and Biobusiness. Company-specific topics often work well on BX. For example, big players like Yelp, Wipro Technologies and Tata Consultancy Services were recently added. Jeffrey R. Immelt, GE’s chairman and CEO, has his own topic, as does the International Monetary Fund and the American Medical Association.
The search wars between top players spawned the topic Google vs. Microsoft, which also talks about Yahoo!’s involvement. Techies among us are sharing info on Mobile TV and Creative Commons. And to round off the eclectic topic mix we have Online Dating Business and Social Media Training.
So take a peek around the site at these newly approved topics and the many others. If you don’t see one that suits your fancy, suggest it. As you can see we are open to a wide variety of business-focused topics, but there are some rules of the road. Read our previous blog post for specific instructions. And don’t forget to send us your feedback.
Enjoy the weekend!
