It’s Labour, not Labor, Day

August 26, 2011

Dear Sir,

For years the American advertising staff at The MarketPlace used their own type of spelling to reach Bermudians, i.e. until recently.

Now however Lindos headline their ads LABOR DAY.

As the majority of Lindo’s customers are not Americans, they should use the accepted type of Bermudian spelling in future.

As the old saying goes - “When in Rome, do as ... “ etc
