People traditionally spend Labor Day doing something they enjoy and President Obama appears to be sticking to tradition.
While many will spend Labor Day barbecuing, the president will be celebrating by doing one of his favorite things– making a kingly decree.
The president will sign an executive order Monday ordering paid sick leave for employees of federal contractors.
Under the order, employees will receive one hour of leave for every 30 hours worked, up to seven days for a calendar year.
How much the order will end up costing federal contractors was not addressed by the White House.
The law will take effect in 2017, after Obama has left office.
