Manchin Statement On Labor Day

Charleston, WV – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement in honor of Labor Day.

“Our great nation was built on the backs of a strong, diverse and dedicated workforce. On Labor Day, we acknowledge the social, civic and economic contributions of our working men and women who have worked tirelessly to put food on the table for their families.

“There is nothing more honorable or rewarding than working hard to provide for your loved ones. As your former Governor and now as your Senator, I am continuing to do my part to ensure our workforce has safe conditions, good wages and opportunities to create a strong future right here in the Mountain State. The best way to invest in the future of West Virginia and America is to invest in our current workforce and in our youth, and to provide opportunities for all who want to work to do so with success and in the best environments we can provide.

“Gayle and I encourage each of you this holiday weekend to thank the hardworking men and women who make a difference in our state every day. Our West Virginia workforce keeps the lights on, educates our children, improves our economy and keeps our communities safe and healthy – and all of that is certainly something to be proud of.”
