Celebrating Essential Workers on Labor Day

Today we celebrate Labor Day. Workers have always been, and continue to be, the unsung heroes of our society. In this difficult moment they have been especially important helping us all adjust to this new normal in so many ways.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we conceptualize what is essential work and who are essential workers. Now more than ever, we must protect our workers. I encourage you to show your appreciation today for the workers in your communities. With deep appreciation and sincere gratitude, I say thank you to all our workers on this Labor Day.
