Office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Labor Day 2017

“We celebrate working people today because they are the backbone of our families, our communities, and our economy. The power of labor is visible everywhere: construction sites and classrooms, steel mills and startups, fire stations and fishing boats, restaurants and repair shops, museums and movie sets, office buildings and online. Los Angeles has more jobs now than at any other time in history — and we owe it to the millions who bring a spirit of industry, hard work, and respect for labor into the workplace each day.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
