No paper on Monday Labor Day holiday
Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — ASG’s Workforce Day took place today, prior to Labor Day, which is Monday.
Monday is an ASG and federal holiday with non-essential gov’t employees on break and banks and the post office closed. Meanwhile many local businesses will be open featuring Labor Day sales across the territory.
This year, the Workforce Day held today was hosted at the Malaeoletalu (for the first time ever). Workforce Day has previously been held at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tafuna.
In our samoanews.com comments earlier in the week, people are posting that they like the idea of the venue change, making travel time shorter for those residing on the eastside.
Lolo told cabinet members that the festivities would kick off in the morning and everything should be done by noon. According to Samoa News staff, the event lasted about 3 hours.
