Happy Labor Day Weekend

From the desk of our water warrior friend in central Wisconsin, :

Happy Labor Day 2016! I will be visiting with folks around the district this weekend. Just wish to pay my respects to the people who brought us Labor Day, paid for with blood, lives and a lot of work from the American Labor Movement. Thank you. From our friend, Ralph Nader:

"Labor Day should be used to reflect on the historic victories of American workers such as establishing the minimum wage and overtime pay, the five-day work week and banning of the use of child labor. Many in the U.S. would find it difficult to imagine living in a country where these things weren’t a given."

Labor Day is also a time to promote the future of labor and push our elected officials on the critical needs of workers, such as improved health and safety measures and increased economic benefits for tens of millions in need."
