Remarks from our Chair on this Labor Day.
Thank you to all of the working men and women who fought and organized to secure so much of what we have today. The 40 hour work week, family leave, the minimum wage, overtime pay, and the right to organize for better benefits – we have these because time after time, American workers showed up and fought for them.
This pandemic has shown us just how vitally essential our workers are. From farmers to grocery store workers, nurses to teachers, we all owe a debt of gratitude to those in our community hard at work keeping our community going.
On this Labor Day, as we celebrate our working men and women, let’s recommit ourselves to the fight for every working family. Workers right are human rights. And we have to fight for those rights every day.
It starts with voting this fall. Organize with your friends, families, and neighbors. Show up for your community. Put in the work now to help build a better Tennessee that works for us all.
