This weekend marks the celebration of Memorial Day, a national day of observance to honor those who have served our country. It’s an American tradition to take advantage of the holiday weekend and kickoff summer by enjoying the warm weather and time off.

Whether it’s flocking to the beach with family or enjoying an outdoor concert with friends, the folks here at Snagajob know these celebrations would be impossible without the help of various businesses and their hourly employees. So, in the spirit of the weekend, we would like to raise a glass to the Memorial Day Hourly Weekend Warriors:

To the lifeguards, who keep watch over those splashing around on opening day of their neighborhood pool.

To restaurant owners and their staff, who provide quality service while most people have the day off.

To retail stores and their sales associates, who patiently help shoppers navigate through Memorial Day sales and special offers.

To hotels and their hospitality teams, who accommodate guests who are traveling over the holiday.

To grocery stores and their clerks, who remain open to help with everyone’s barbecue needs.

These are just a few examples of the many people who help make Memorial Day weekend so memorable. So this weekend, remember to say say thanks (and be extra nice) to those providing you with great customer service. Which Hourly Weekend Warriors do you think deserve a shout out? Let us know in the comments section below.
