Remembering Hardworking Americans on Workers Memorial Day

Every year on April 28, we reflect on Workers Memorial Day. Today we pay tribute to all the hardworking Americans who have lost their lives or have been injured while on the job. We take time to remember all the sacrifices of workers who were only trying to pursue the American dream and provide for their families.

AFL-CIO reports that more than 4,400 workers were killed on the job and more than 50,000 more died from occupational diseases.

Workers deserve to have safe, healthy and fair jobs. We support workers in the fight for America to create more secure jobs.
