But local jurisdictions may also put their feet down when it comes to driving barefoot.

  • What is Labor Day?

    Labor Day is near, which means that you can start to make plans for an extended weekend and enjoy a day off from work. It is also a time to celebrate the contributions workers have made to building the nation. The federal holiday, which is the first Monday of September, is marked by closed courts, schools, and workplaces. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the holiday is "dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country." Champions for employment rights have improved the lives of working Americans by pushing for strong labor laws and effective labor unions.

The truth is, there are measures that can be taken to save the life of a beloved pet if they're in a hot car.

  • Does Homeowners' Insurance Cover Flooding?

    The best time to get protection against a flood is before it happens. That means if you keep anything in a basement or live on the ground floor, it's important to have flood insurance. However, many properties that should have flood insurance do not. A flood insurance policy is separate from a standard homeowners insurance policy or renters insurance policy and can cover your home and personal belongings in the event of a flood. Mostly, flood insurance can cover flooding from hurricanes or an extreme amount of rain.
