National Third Shift Workers Day recognizes the hard work and dedication of those who work through the night to keep the country running smoothly. This day is also known as Night Shift Workers Day. These people include doctors, nurses, police officers, firemen, janitors and more! Metropolitan areas of any size have employees working overnight to ensure the safety and reliability of water, power, and other infrastructure. There are so many of these unappreciated workers all over the country doing their jobs so that the people can be safe and business can continue to run. This is a day to give them the appreciation they deserve.
Jeff Corbett founded National Third Shift Workers Day to recognize those who keep businesses running, the lights on, and people safe throughout the night. Velcea Kay founded the similarly named National Night Shift Workers Day to be observed on the same date recognizing those same dedicated workers who flip their days and nights around so the rest of the world can rest safely.
