“The basic bargain of America is that no matter who you are, where you come from or what you look like, if you work hard & play by the rules, you can make it.” — Former DOL Secretary Tom Perez

The Labor Day holiday in United States is celebrated the first Monday in September. Labor Day was really created by the national labor movements to celebrate the American worker and their achievements, both social and economic! Each of us that work every day, immigrant or citizen, this is our celebration! For more information about the history of Labor Day review the Department of Labor’s (DOL) web page, “History of Labor Day“.

MVP Law Group would like to thank workers worldwide for their contributions to our society!

“Immigrants signed their names to our Declaration and helped win our independence. Immigrants helped lay the railroads and build our cities, calloused hand by calloused hand. Immigrants took up arms to preserve our union, to defeat fascism, and to win a Cold War. Immigrants and their descendants helped pioneer new industries and fuel our Information Age, from Google to the iPhone. So the story of immigrants in America isn’t a story of “them,” it’s a story of “us.” It’s who we are. And now, all of you get to write the next chapter.” – President Barack Obama

“So if you’re an American, and you see a veteran — maybe with a prosthetic arm or leg, maybe burns on their face — don’t ever look away. Do not turn away. You go up and you reach out, and you shake their hand, and you look them in the eye and you say those words every veteran should hear all the time: “Welcome home, thank you. We need you more than ever. You help us stay strong, you help us stay free.” – President Obama

Memorial Day in United States

“This weekend, folks across the country are opening up the pool, firing up the grill, and taking a well-earned moment to relax. But Memorial Day is more than a three-day weekend. In town squares and national cemeteries, in public services and moments of quiet reflection, we will honor those who loved their country enough to sacrifice their own lives for it.”

– President Obama, Memorial Day 2012 at Arlington National Cemetery
