Dear Mr. Blessing,

Happy Labor Day! Every year we celebrate the contribution of unions and the labor movement to our country. Unions built the American middle class. We owe the 40-hour work week, minimum wage, and child labor laws all to the work of organized labor and unions. They are a force against income inequality and we need them now more than ever.

As a member of the Labor and Working Families Caucus and a former member of the Teamsters Union, I am fighting for you every day. I am proud to be a cosponsor of The Protecting the Right to Organize Act to expand protections for workers who exercise their right to unionize. I also voted to pass the Raise the Wage Act, which would increase the federal minimum wage for the first time in a decade.

Sincerely,
