Manchin Statement on Labor Day

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) released the following statement in honor of Labor Day:

“On this Labor Day, I encourage all West Virginians to take a moment in between picnics, parades and time with family and friends to reflect on the true reason for this annual celebration—our dedicated American workforce.  It is important not just today, but every day, for us to pay tribute to the hardworking men and women across West Virginia and America whose strength, vision and drive have always been the bedrock of this great country. Our labor workers represent the heart of America, taking pride in their work and going the extra mile to do the job right. So on behalf all West Virginians, I want to express my utmost gratitude to our workers for supporting our communities, keeping our country running every day, and contributing immeasurably to America’s economic prosperity.”
