In celebration of our workers this Labor Day, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy would like to share this message:

“Happy Labor Day everyone. Every morning, hardworking Americans wake up and head out to their jobs. Construction workers, firefighters, nurses, manufacturers, small business owners, and entrepreneurs—all move this country along, helping their communities and this nation as they provide for themselves and their families.

“There’s nothing more rewarding than getting a good job and doing that job well. As this lackluster ‘recovery’ continues to sputter along, it is my goal to continue to promote economic expansion that will create good-paying jobs so everyone can support themselves and have the dignity of good employment.

“I would like to give a special thanks to all the small-business owners and workers, emergency personnel, and everyone else whose jobs don’t ever take a day off. But whether or not you’re at the office today, out of town for a long weekend, or back at home with family and friends, I want to commemorate this holiday by saying thank you to each and every one of you for all of your hard work.”
