Statement From Commissioner Roberta Reardon on Labor Day

Labor Day was born out of the sacrifice, strife, and hard work of labor unions across America in the late 1800’s. This holiday is of particular importance at the New York State Department of Labor. On this day, it is imperative that we not only celebrate the contributions workers nationwide make each and every day, but reflect on their hard-fought struggle to reach this point. The State of New York and the Department of Labor have made incredible strides under Governor Cuomo in our continuing efforts to protect, improve, and enhance the lives of workers. We stand on the shoulders of the workers that came before us, and will continue to do what’s necessary to ensure that all New Yorkers prosper.
