From the VA AFL-CIO:
Labor Day is more than just picnics and gearing up to go back to school—it is a day to honor America’s working people. In the face of this unprecedented pandemic, it’s important now more than ever to support America’s workers first.
When working people come together, the sky is the limit. Unions enable workers to negotiate for higher pay, better hours, more affordable health care—and power.
This Labor Day, we’re celebrating union solidarity and letting everyone around us know: Workers First. Vote Union.
Friend, will you join us?
When we’re in a union, we’re all stronger together than we are on our own. We can fight for the fair workplaces we all deserve. Today, whether you’re at a barbecue, a picnic or a parade, let your friends and family know: Unions make us stronger.
This Labor Day, when it’s time to head back inside after a day at the pool or an evening barbecue, let’s reflect on why we get this day off—to recognize the decades America’s working people and the labor movement have spent fighting to ensure we have safe, quality workspaces. Now, let’s make sure we elect people for public office who will keep it that way.
If you’re in a union, wear your membership with pride. If you’re not yet in a union, join one today. To all the working people who keep our nation—and our world—moving: Happy Labor Day!
