US Department of Labor unveils 1st-ever Labor Day video

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today posted online its first-ever Labor Day video. This year, instead of giving the traditional "State of the American Worker" Labor Day speech in front of a small group, Secretary Solis has recorded a video both in English and Spanish highlighting the department's support of and commitment to the American worker. By harnessing the power of technology, she is able to speak directly to all American workers. Furthermore, through the use of a newly created email address — talktosolis@dol.gov — American workers are able to reply to the secretary.
