WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, in advance of Labor Day, For Our Future Executive Director Sky Gallegos issued the following statement. 

“Every Labor Day, we honor those who have fought for and advanced workers’ rights, and we recognize the progress achieved by organized labor for all Americans. In this moment, we also celebrate the most pro-union, pro-worker president of our lifetimes – President Joe Biden.

“From the Inflation Reduction Act and the bipartisan infrastructure law to last week’s announcement on lower costs for prescription drugs, President Biden’s leadership is lowering costs for families across our country and creating good-paying union jobs. His vision of growing the economy from the middle out stands in stark contrast to congressional Republicans, who are standing in the way of progress for working families and pushing their anti-worker agenda at every turn. So, on this Labor Day, For Our Future stands firm in our commitment to supporting President Biden’s agenda to lift up working families and all Americans through shared economic prosperity, strong public education, and social and racial justice.”
