MADISON – Gov. Tony Evers proclaimed Sept. 2, 2019 Labor Day throughout the state of Wisconsin.
In an official proclamation, Gov. Evers noted the importance of workers and labor unions across our state and country, highlighting their significant contributions to ensuring 40-hour work weeks, overtime compensation, minimum wage, and the right to collectively bargain, among other improved living and work standards.
“On Labor Day we are called on to reflect on the contributions that our workers and their families have made to our state and our country,” said Gov. Evers. “And while we celebrate and honor that history, we also renew our commitment to fighting for equal pay, livable wages, and safe and inclusive workplaces knowing that we have much more work to do to ensure we have an economy that works for everyone.”
