Every day, but especially on Labor Day, I'm grateful for my job as a union bus driver.
Standing together with my coworkers gives us the freedom to negotiate a fair return on our work and create a better future for our families.
From cafeteria workers in Silicon Valley to aircraft maintenance workers on bases to graduate workers in universities across the country, it’s been inspiring to see more and more people take collective action to reclaim their freedom to join together.
It's important to keep this momentum going -- to keep pushing for better wages, retirement security and rights on the job for all -- because, for too long, working people have been on the losing end of a rigged economy.
This Labor Day, let’s recommit to come together for a better deal for working people.
