Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement in honor of Labor Day:
“Today is the day we set aside to honor the struggles and achievements of working men and women and the labor movement. For this one day, we make workers the focus of our attention – not the business owners, the products or the profits. We simply say thank you to those who do what needs to be done to make our nation work.
Today is also the time honored marker beginning the home stretch for the election season, when voters start to tune in and focus. With an unhinged, xenophobic, misogynistic, narcissistic, demagogue at the top of the Republican ticket, and with his crony candidates running for office at every level of government, Democrats must take this election with extreme seriousness, for defeat would be no laughing matter.
We must go all out in the fight to regain the two-thirds super-majority in the Legislature, grow the size of our Congressional delegation, and elect our first female President. Though we have come a long way, we must help elect leaders who will challenge the injustices that keep our workers down. The members of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party will stand united in these battles ahead and remain dedicated to helping elect good forward-thinking Democrats who will fight the good fight for our working men and women.
Remember, an injury to one is an injury to all. Let’s make this Labor Day the kick-off to a victory for all.”
