Labor Day 2013
Labor Day is a celebration of the incredible contributions of America’s working people. Through sweat, sacrifice and innovation, workers built this country and make it run every day. But today, we’re working longer hours, taking on multiple jobs and producing more goods and services. Yet wages have flatlined, except for those at the very top.
Aspiring citizens, too, toil in the shadows to build a better life for their families but end up working in poor and unsafe conditions and too often fall into the hands of unscrupulous employers.
Everyone deserves a living wage and a safe workplace free of harassment and abuse. Everyone deserves a voice on the job. Everyone deserves a chance at a middle-class life through hard work.
