Who's laboring on Labor Day? Tri-State cops, healthcare workers, casino employee and many others

CINCINNATI - Maybe you needed the extra hours to boost your paycheck. Maybe you're hoarding comp days to add to your paid time off. Or, perhaps your boss said: "I need you to work." Whatever the reason you were on the clock this past Labor Day, we salute you. 

This Facebook post got more than 100 responses (and counting) in less than two hours. We asked:
