  2. Cragsman Group: Develop a list of questions to ask a local small business owner about what Labor Day means to them. Prepare your questions ahead of time and make notes of their answers. Your questions might include: How many employees they have, what services or products they offer, and what the company gives back to the community. Don’t forget to thank them for hiring workers at their business. And ask them what they consider the most important characteristics in a good employee.
