As Labor Day approaches, I hope that you and your family are able to enjoy this end of Summer holiday in a safe, responsible manner. Our state has come a long way since the unofficial start of the season on Memorial Day, when we were just coming out of the grip of COVID-19. While we are by no means finished with this crisis, we are clearly in a stronger position now than we were then, and that is something we can all be thankful for.
Labor Day is a time to celebrate the hardworking men and women who built our country, and who continue to make our economy move forward. It makes me think about the essential workers who have continued to serve our communities during the pandemic, often at personal risk. It’s also a time to reflect on the progress we’ve made on issues important to working families, from moving to a $15 per hour minimum wage, to guaranteeing paid sick leave to employees and much more. If you can, please chip in today to help New Jersey Democrats keep standing up for these shared priorities.
