Labor Day 2014: Raising Wages Works
This Labor Day we recognize the incredible achievements of America’s workers and celebrate all who make this country run.
We also recognize despite our sweat, sacrifice and innovations, too many families are struggling to make ends meet. Good jobs are scarce, unemployment still is unacceptably high and the greedy few have rigged the game at the expense of working people.
This year, we worked to raise wages to create a more equal economy, to counteract our nation’s rising inequality and halt the decade-long erosion of our middle class. And we have witnessed workers, community organizers, faith leaders, civil rights activists and many others come together to achieve incredible victories across the country, which is worth celebrating.
