This holiday weekend is set aside to pay tribute to the American labor force, and Terrance Daniels, an independent contractor with Terrance Daniels Custom Painting and Repairs, is one such worker. Earlier this week Daniels was repairing a porch column at a Floyd Street residence owned by Jay Jaynes, a Savannah transplant who has lived in Covington approximately a year. Daniels said he has been working on houses for 30 years and is thankful for the work he's got in these unsteady economic times. Labor Day is observed on the first Monday in September and was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century. It became a federal holiday in 1894.
