Labor Day is coming soon and this year, like we do on every Labor Day, we will pause to recognize the incredible achievements of America’s workers. We will gather in communities to march in parades, host barbecues and celebrate all who make this country run. But we also should recognize that despite our sweat, our sacrifice and our innovation, too many families are struggling and unable to get by.
