It has been three years since our nation’s economy crashed into the Great Recession. The greatest burden from the economic meltdown has fallen on the shoulders of American workers and their families. Wages are down, jobs have been lost, unemployment benefits and savings are nearly exhausted. Sadly, this Labor Day finds American politics little focused on jobs and economic recovery. Instead, the November election is dominated by finger pointing, fringe issues, candidate attack ads and deception. American workers need and deserve solid leadership and specific plans from the White House and Congress dedicated to fixing the economy and strengthening the job market.
