You might choose early mornings. You might choose steel-toe boots over a button-down shirt. You might choose tire tread, and molten metal and dirt, over a fleet of office cubicles. We get it.
Here at Graphic Products, we understand that working hard, and working safe sometimes means taking the long road. We thank you for putting the safety and security of your workforce in our hands for 50 years. We thank you for the long road and wish you a happy Labor Day.
“In America, we take great pride in being a nation that values both hard work and family.”
While the history of Labor Day is debated, the holiday was nationally approved on June 28, 1894, thanks to Sen. James Henderson Kyle of South Dakota. Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly nod to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the US.
The U.S. Department of Labor and Labor Secretary Tom Perez has celebrated Labor Day 2015 with a month-long road trip across the country to talk with Americans about how to succeed in the workplace and at home. With stops in Michigan, Nebraska, and even Graphic Products turf in Portland, Perez has discussed hot-topic issues like paid leave and overtime.
