jQuery Each - Value of Label for=""

I'm trying to retrieve the value of the for="" using jQuery's each.  I'm looking for the EventStartMonth and EventEndMonth values.  Am I on the right track or is there a better approach?  Thanks.
<script>
$(function(){
	$.each( $( '.input.datetime label[for$=Month]' ) , function( k , v ){
		alert( v.value );
	});
});
</script>
<div class="input datetime">
 <label for="EventStartMonth">Start</label>
	<select name="data[Event][start][month]" id="EventStartMonth"> 
	<option value="01">January</option> 
	<option value="02">February</option> 
	<option value="03">March</option> 
	</select>
 <label for="EventEndMonth">End</label>
	<select name="data[Event][end][month]" id="EventEndMonth"> 
	<option value="01">January</option> 
	<option value="02">February</option> 
	<option value="03">March</option> 
	</select>
</div>

Hi,

You can simply use $(this) to access the object inside the loop. So you would do something like this:

$.each( $( '.input.datetime label[for$=Month]' ) , function( k , v ){
		alert( $(this).attr("for") );
	});

You have got the label elements all right, but the label doesn't have the value so you have to find the select element inside the label:


$.each($('.input.datetime label[for$=Month] select') , function( k , v ){
  alert($(v).val());
});

or:

$.each($('.input.datetime label[for$=Month]') , function( k , v ){
  alert($(v).find('select').val());
});
