Manchin Statement on Labor Day

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) issued the following statement in honor of Labor Day.

“This Labor Day we honor the strong and steadfast men and women who have tirelessly fought to make America the best country in the world and who continue to keep our state and nation running. In West Virginia, the dedication and work ethic of our workers is second to none. They have always set the bar for productivity, quality and innovation. They work hard every day, take care of their families, and support our communities, our state and our country. They take pride in their work and go the extra mile to do the job right. 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 workforce and all they have done to create safe work environments, equality in the workforce and economic prosperity here at home. May God bless our workers, and may God bless the state of West Virginia.”
