We salute the labor movement!

On this Labor Day, we salute the fighting spirit of the labor movement against corporate greed and anti-democratic politicians. We salute labor’s struggle for unity and action of all workers, their families and communities.

From the struggle to raise the minimum wage to the struggles for jobs, immigrant rights, renewal of the Voting Rights Act, passage of the Employee Free Choice Act, affirmative action, health care for all and quality public schools, the labor movement has provided crucial leadership and resources for these just causes.

We also salute the stance by labor in calling for a prompt withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

The battle to change Congress and restore “checks and balances” to government is the next great battle. We salute the millions of union members in the U.S. who will engage in this battle and through their sweat, make this country and world a better place.

¡Sí se puede! United, we will win!
