While I usually spend Labor camping, if you are looking for some good Labor Day movies to watch, here's my top ten: http://www.andrewnixon.com/movies/labor.htm
1) On the Waterfront (1954)
2) The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
3) Hoffa (1992)
4) Roger & Me (1989)
5) Norma Rae (1979)
6) F.I.S.T. (1978)
7) Office Space (1999)
8) Take This Job and Shove It (1981)
9) The Molly Maguires (1970)
10) Gung Ho (1986)

This isn't a definitive list, just something I came up with quickly for a little fun. I thought of several other work related kinda movies like, Secret of my Success, Working Girl, Other People's Money, etc. Feel free to add your favorites to the list.

2 french films by Laurent Cantet deserve to be seen as they dig deep into the psyche of a working or a non-working man.

Human Resources
Time out

both are available on dvd.

Time Out would certainly be near the top of my list, along with Eisenstein's Strike, Bicycle Thieves, Salt of the Earth, the docs Welfare (Wiseman) and The Gleaners and I(Varda). Will post if I come up with others I like as much as these 6.
