Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) Minister, Civil Rights Activist
His name was originally Michael, not Martin. His father was also Michael King, hence why Martin Luther King Jr. was originally named Michael King Jr. However, after a trip to Germany in 1931, Michael King Sr. changed his own name in homage to historic German theologian Martin Luther. Michael King Jr. was two years old at the time and King Sr. made the decision to change his son’s name to Martin Luther as well. It wasn’t until the year 2000 that all 50 states officially observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The last states to join up where Arizona in 1992, New Hampshire in 1999, and Utah in 2000. The holiday itself was originally signed into federal law by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, with the first MLK holiday on January 20, 1986.

"As for the future of jobs in America for 2014, I see little change in the unemployment rate. At the same time, I see the number of temporary workers achieving an all-time high and skilled workers will remain hard to find and in high demand," said Funk, the former Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve. "I've been in the staffing business for nearly 50 years and certain trends are clear - the most notable is widespread uncertainty in the labor market. It will remain the driving force in 2014."
