Barrasso: American Workers Are Winning as Nation Celebrates Labor Day

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, released the following statement regarding Labor Day:

"American workers are winning as our nation celebrates Labor Day. Jobs are growing, wages are rising, and the unemployment rate continues near a 50-year low. Wage growth has been particularly strong since Senate Republicans passed tax reform. That’s especially true for lower income workers. With 7.3 million open jobs across the nation, opportunity abounds for workers in America’s robust jobs market. As we honor the American workforce this Labor Day, Senate Republicans are committed to creating even more opportunities for workers in our strong, healthy and growing economy."
