Labor Caucus Honors American Workers on Labor Day
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Labor Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Steven Horsford (D-NV), Donald Norcross (D-NJ), Mark Pocan (D-WI) Linda Sánchez (D-CA), and Tom Suozzi (D-NY) issued the following statement in honor of American workers on Labor Day.
“Today, we honor workers for their endless contributions and achievements toward our nation’s prosperity and well-being, especially those who continue to serve on the frontlines of this pandemic. They are our unsung heroes, and we are so grateful to the sacrifices they make each and every day.”
“This Labor Day, it’s more important than ever that we reflect on the many hard-won accomplishments of the labor movement and the fights yet to come. From establishing the minimum wage and the five-day workweek, to abolishing child labor and fighting unfair working conditions, labor unions have made critical gains for all working people. But the fight continues and the Labor Caucus remains steadfast in our commitment to uplifting the voice of every worker and ensuring that every worker has the right to unionize.”
