OCTOBER 16TH IS NATIONAL BOSS’S DAY

National Boss’s Day is a great day to take a moment and show our appreciation for our managers, employers – our bosses.


What Makes a Good Boss?

Here are some attributes people say make for the best boss:

  • Fair
  • Honest
  • Understanding
  • Approachable
  • A good communicator

The origin of Boss’s Day dates back to 1958. Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Illinois, registered it with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Haroski chose the date because it was her father’s birthday. Who was her boss? …. Her father.

 

FUEL SURCHARGE TO DECREASE IN OCTOBER

Because of a decrease in fuel surcharges in the past month nationwide, Blue Streak’s fuel charge will decrease to 10% in October. Our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.

 

How it’s calculated: If the national average price of regular unleaded fuel* is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month.
