To All Workers Today, Thank You

Release Date: 2020-09-07

On Labor Day we honor and celebrate the contributions of hardworking men and women fighting for better working conditions and social and economic rights that strengthen our nation. Thank you to those who power our local economy and the steps they have taken to increase worker protections like instituting the eight-hour workday, ensuring workplace safety, and banning discrimination.

Unions have and continue to improve working conditions, pay equity, and expand health care and benefits. On Labor Day and every day of the year—we thank them.

This holiday I hope you and those you love are able to rest and celebrate safely by keeping safe and taking care of each other. 

Thank you and Happy Labor Day,

Mayor Robert Garcia
