Congressman Griffith's Labor Day statement

Published On: Sep 02 2013 11:27:06 AM EDT

Congressman Morgan Griffith released the following statement to mark Labor Day on September 2.

"Labor Day is a day to celebrate the strength and vitality of our American workers who have built our great nation.

As I have stated repeatedly, our workers are the best in the world. I am reminded of this every time I travel throughout the 9th District.

Whether visiting a coal mine, a local business, a hospital, or a farm, I see firsthand the people of Southwest Virginia working hard to provide for their families and their communities.

So thanks to all of you who have helped make America resilient and strong. I hope you enjoy Labor Day with your family and friends."
