This Labor Day, with millions of Americans still out of work, it’s more important than ever that we support responsible companies that keep good, family-supporting jobs here at home.

Companies like Monterrey Mushrooms, CUTCO Cutlery and AT&T have risen to the top of their industries through collaborative partnerships with employees and their unions. Responsible employers are proof that when workers share in the success they create, we all win.

At businesses across the country, union workers and their employers have weathered the Great Recession by working together to find innovative solutions and reduce costs.

As consumers, we can help create an economy that works for working families by taking our business to companies that treat their workers well. Supporting companies that choose the high road is good for America’s workers, our communities, and the economy. And it’s a great way to celebrate Labor Day.
