Labor Day is a time to celebrate the working men and women of our nation — the everyday people that make our society run day-in and day-out.

At The Mountaineer, we recognize those who make our county work with some of the many photos we’ve taken that show the people of our county hard at work in various sectors of our economy.

Pictured clockwise from top left: (1) Daniel Sanchez lays natural gas lines in a Waynesville neighborhood. (2) Sushi chefs prepare handmade rolls at Watami Sushi and Noodles. (3) Blake Woody loads a hand truck with UPS packages for the Haywood County administrative offices. (4) Tom Wilson, owner of American Cleaners, poses outside of his business in Canton. (5) Father and son Robert and James Rhineheart move furniture at Massie’s Furniture in Waynesville, while Margie Stepp clears a path. (6) Sebastian Lee Roper-Gibson balances a tire at Waynesville Tire. (7) Stacy Downs repairs jewelry at The Jeweler’s Workbench.
