Labor Day is the only national holiday that officially recognizes the contributions of American working men and women. While there is still work to do, CSEA and its partners in the labor movement are proud of the numerous strides we have made for workers' rights and safety on the job. You can thank unions for the eight-hour workday, weekends and the end of child labor, and yes, paid holidays such as Labor Day.
Let's face it, most of the legal rights and safety laws that protect American workers were not created out of employer goodwill, they were fought for by hard-working union members. Today, however, unions are under an unprecedented attack from political special-interest groups who want to roll back worker protections, civil liberties and the right to collectively bargain for pay and benefits.
