Washington, D.C. – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement on Labor Day.
“Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer. For many Americans, it’s the last hurrah before the weather starts to change and our children head back to school. Today is also a celebration of the American worker. Generations of hardworking men and women of all industries built this country and continue to make it the greatest nation on earth.
“Today and every day, House Republicans honor that hard work, and we want to see it rewarded, which is a cornerstone of our Better Way agenda. Employees and employers across this country are drowning in red tape, and struggling to make ends meet. Our reforms put the American worker back in the driver seat, reducing the burden of government on their everyday lives. No matter your age, race, gender, or walk of life, you should be empowered to pursue your version of the American Dream. Those are the opportunities House Republicans fight for every day, because a job is so much more than a paycheck. It’s a contribution to your community, and a path towards a better life.”
