“As the proud son of a union family, Labor Day is always special for me, but this year is particularly important because of everything working women and men have done to help this city and country battle the pandemic. It is critical that we thank and honor them for their hard work. 

“New York City is the birthplace of the American labor movement, and the contributions those women and men have made our city and our country stronger. Sadly, the fight for worker rights is not over, but we are committed to standing with labor today and every day to build a better future.”
