Today, September 6, Americans across the nation are celebrating Labor Day.
In recognition of this important holiday, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz issued the following statement:
“To the degree that America is the wealthiest nation on earth, it owes much of its success and prosperity to the steadfastness, resourcefulness and industriousness of its workers. It is no different when it comes to the invaluable contribution of labor to our great state. Whether in our hospitals, agricultural fields, in hotels and restaurants, in construction sites or public service, in every possible field of human endeavor it’s workers who have built and who keep Florida running.
“Labor Day, however, is not just about honoring the contributions of today’s workers. It demands that we remember and honor the toil and the sacrifices of all those labor activists who sacrificed so much throughout history to secure so many of the rights we now take for granted. May their spirit inspire us as we continue to fight for the dignity, justice and fair compensation our nation’s great workers deserve.”
