Happy Labor Day! I hope you are enjoying yourselves. I do want to remind you of what this day is about. Here is a simple synopsis:
The idea is to recognize and honor the American labor movement and the ways in which American workers have contributed to the country’s success over the years. This holiday was born in response to a series of workers’ strikers in the late 19th century, as workers protested against unfair working conditions.
You, as a primary care physician, deserve this. You have sacrificed your youth to get to where you are and have contributed so much to the country’s success. Hell, you have saved lives!
Now, let’s dig deeper into the quote above. This holiday was born in response to a series of worker strikes as workers protested against unfair working conditions. Sound familiar?
There are no unions for doctors. Direct Primary Care is an example of striking with our feet by walking out on a system that is broken and unfair. Now the working conditions where you practice are your own and with your own rules. And you are happy again.
Cheers to all you DPC Docs who made this move! For those on the fence please JUMP. You can look at some reading here to find how to do it.
Now go drink your Margarita or take a dip in the pool or drain that cyst or sew up that arm or whatever you need to do on this holiday. You deserve this happiness.
