Labor Day Events Across Pennsylvania

fb_laborday2016_1Labor Day is a day to honor working people and the contributions we make to our country.  As we celebrate this weekend with our families and friends, we must keep in mind that there are many workers in this country who will not be so fortunate.  Too many people today work second and third jobs just to make ends meet, and that is not ok.

Labor Day is often considered a holiday that marks the end of Summer or the start of the home stretch of the November election. While we are in the middle of a campaign season unlike any other, we must not forget who we are fighting for: workers and their families.

This Labor Day, let’s pledge to strengthen the fight for working people and their families.   Get involved this year; it’s just too important to stand aside.
