Texas Democrats Celebrate Labor Day
Today, our country celebrates Labor Day, a day to commemorate labor unions and the members who fought to make the workplace better for everyone.
Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement:
“As Texans gather today with families and friends, we recognize how organized labor built our great country. Opportunity for all and a fair workplace; these are values we all share.
“Texas Democrats support those who labor to help build a better Texas — the people who put in a hard day’s work to teach our children, build our infrastructure, grow and serve our food, transport our goods, and ensure the safety of our communities.
“Our job is not yet done, workers deserve good wages for their hard work, equal pay for equal work, a stronger education pathway, and affordable care. This November, we must elect leaders like Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte, who will continue to protect our rights and fight for all Texans.”
