Labor Day is here, and that means time off from work, backyard barbecues, and final trips to the beach. As fun as that all may seem, it's also a time to reflect on the great work this country has done since the days of the Industrial Revolution .
This Labor Day, working people — especially those who dedicate their careers to healthcare and public service — deserve recognition, respect, and gratitude. This once-in-a-lifetime public health emergency has demanded more of us than ever, and we have delivered, often under life-or-death conditions.
We celebrate the fearlessness and resilience that working people have shown throughout this pandemic. And we resolve, in the coming months and years, to fight even harder for our rights and freedoms, to build an economy that puts workers’ interests front and center. Happy Labor Day, everyone.
