9.5 million jobs were added to the economy of the United States of America and the unemployment rate has plunged to 3.5 percent, matching a 53-year low, since president Joe Biden took office, according to Marty Walsh, the U.S. Secretary of Labor.
In a message posted on the United States Department of Labor’s official website, Marty Walsh presented „a few of the many ways the U.S. Department of Labor and the Biden-Harris administration are empowering workers by promoting good jobs and providing the tools and resources they need to succeed”:
- focusing on improving job quality and job equity;
- empowering workers to organize and successfully bargain with their employers;
- honoring the essential workers who moved us forward through the pandemic.
Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.
