Back to work!

The first Monday in September is Labour Day, an official holiday established in 1894 to celebrate workers’ rights and achievements. Unofficially, Labour Day marks the end of summer and a return to routine for students and vacationers alike. To add some fun to the upcoming occasion, take our latest rebus quiz on work-related vocabulary!

Instructions: Each question consists of a series of clues. First, find the term that corresponds to each clue: for example, put + prickly seed = lay + burr. Then string the terms together to get the whole word: in this case, labour. But be careful! As with burr and -bour, you may have to rely on sound—and ignore spelling—to find the final answer!
