A Labor Day Message From Our President

I want to wish everyone a wonderful Labor Day!


I hope you all enjoy the day off, but I also want to ask everyone to take a minute sometime this weekend to remember all of the men and women who risked their jobs and their lives to fight for the weekends, the minimum wages, the healthcare, and the paid vacations that we so often take for granted today.


The fight is far from over.  Across the globe, workers are still struggling to maintain livable wages, safe working conditions, and dignity on the job.  We stand in solidarity with those who blazed the way, and those who keep the struggle going:


Our grandmothers: 


Our grandfathers:

Our parents and colleagues across the world:




Our friends and family right here at home:

We are all in this together!
