|'Labor/labour' in this context means 'work'. 'Labour' is also the workforce or a company's workers.
Here are two interesting expressions with the word 'labour':

- to labour the point, to argue/to discuss something too long.
Another sense of the word 'labour' is '(pains of) childbirth'.
Also, if a car engine, etc. labours, it works with difficulty.
