In commemoration of Labor Day, Maine Democratic Party Chair Kathleen Marra released the following statement:

“Today, we pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of working Mainers who are the economic engines of our state. Democrats believe the right to organize for fair wages, safe working conditions, and workplace protections is central to making the economy work for everyone. 

“But Donald Trump and the Republican Party have shown a clear contempt for working people with their attacks on labor, from stacking the National Labor Relations Board with anti-labor advocates, to gutting workplace safety protections, to nominating and confirming anti-union judges. This Labor Day, we are committed to electing leaders who will protect workers’ rights and strengthen unions, and that’s why we have to do everything we can to elect Democrats up and down the ticket and send Joe Biden to the White House this November.”
