"We take our mission seriously and to heart."

The employees of the U.S. Department of Labor have made a real and significant impact on the changing nature of work and the evolution of our nationís working families.

For nearly a century, we have not only made work better for workers, but life better for everyone.

We still have so much to do. Our commitment to the workers of our nation will never falter. Neither will our commitment to excellence.

I am proud to be your colleague and grateful for your service to our nation. Happy Labor Day!
