The AFL-CIO has launched a creative new digital application just in time to reclaim Labor Day as a day to recognize people for their hard work.
Via the new online app, participants can send innovative thank you cards through Facebook and email to friends, teachers, bus drivers, firefighters, construction workers, baristas and others whose work they depend on. The app features videos from people, including actor Martin Sheen recognizing his newspaper delivery person.
The Labor Day campaign is part of a broader, long-term initiative by America’s unions to send the message that “Work Connects Us All” and to help provide a voice for all people who work.
“Labor Day should be about more than the unofficial end of summer,” said AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler. “Each of us relies on the work of others, and Labor Day should be a time to recognize all those contributions. Our work binds us together, and as Americans, we’re stronger when we celebrate those ties that make us better.”
