On Labor Day, we celebrate all of our hardworking women and men and their countless contributions to our nation's progress and history. We owe so much to our workers, who built our nation's economy and created prosperity for our families. Thanks to the labor movement, from the fundamental right to organize, to better working conditions and wages, our working women and men have greatly improved the lives of millions of Americans. We celebrate all of those accomplishments, and recommit ourselves to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with them in their drive for higher wages, including a higher federal minimum wage, paid family leave in the workplace, and better workplace protections for Americans of all identities. These fights are our next frontier in building a better economy for every American, and I am proud to be their partner in those efforts.
