President Obama's Labor Day message to America's working men and women is a powerful demonstration of how important it is to elect leaders – at every level of our government – who understand the needs and aspirations of working families and who are committed to, as the President writes, "make it easier, not harder, for American workers to make your voices heard."
President Obama said:
"When workers raise their voices for a fair wage and dignity in the workplace, they sustain the story of America: the idea that if you work hard, you should be able to get ahead, retire with dignity, and leave something behind for the next generation."
