Happy Labor Day!
At RingCentral, we want to take this opportunity to celebrate small business owners and honor their tremendous efforts to achieve success through their entrepreneurial spirit, smart innovations and hard work.
And there are many small business owners to celebrate! In fact, more than 98% of U.S. businesses are small businesses. They produce more than 50% of the U.S. gross domestic product, and pay for more than 70 million workers to take Labor Day off.
Since it was first celebrated in New York City in 1882, Labor Day has been designated the official day for celebrating the achievements of America’s workers. This certainly includes all of the hardworking women and men out there who are business owners. So, whether you’ll be enjoying a well-deserved getaway, attending a neighborhood barbecue, or, like many other small business owners, planning to work this weekend, we salute you and your hard work!
