Richard Trumka Has a Question for You this Labor Day

August 25, 2014

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.

How would you or someone you know be affected if we raised the federal minimum wage? Share your story by texting LABOR to 235246, and it could appear on the AFL-CIO Now blog
