Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement in honor of Labor Day, this Monday September 6, 2010.
"Labor Day first became a federal holiday in 1894 to recognize the contributions made by the national labor movement in the United States. Like so many New Hampshire citizens, I am the product of a working family and know firsthand the vital role that movement played in so many American lives.
"While the past year has been tough for workers across our country, there is a lot for New Hampshire citizens to be proud of. The steady and responsible leadership of Governor Lynch and our Democratic majorities in the state House and Senate has led to New Hampshire having the second fastest growing job market in the country and an unemployment rate that is 40% below the national rate.
