They make us strong

The working men and women of America make our nation strong, sustain our economy, and contribute to our communities in countless ways.

Today, we honor the labor movement and workers past and present. And we pause to thank the workforce for their contributions to our lifestyle that includes weekends, minimum wage, protections against child labor, and a strong economy.

But also today, that strong economy leaves too many Americans behind. Income inequality, attacks on workers' rights to organize, and Donald Trump's trade and tariff wars mean that too many working families struggle to get by.

As Oregon's attorney general, I stand with working families. And I commit to doing everything in my power as the state's chief law officer to protect collective bargaining rights, ensure workplace equality, and champion decent working conditions, wages, and benefits.

Happy Labor Day.

Ellen
