The State of the American Worker

by Secretary Hilda Solis on September 1, 2010 · 1 comment

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.

Please take a moment to watch the video below and visit www.dol.gov/laborday for more information about the history of Labor Day and the many resources available to you through your Department of Labor.
