For me, Labor Day has always been a day to celebrate the contributions that working men and women have made to the strength and prosperity of the country. Yet I know that as we mark Labor Day in 2010, many workers across the country continue to feel more anxious than festive.
That’s why this year, I wanted to use Labor Day as a chance to talk directly with you — the American worker. I want to share what I’ve seen and heard in my travels around the country, and I want you to know how the Labor Department is working to get America back to work.
