Julie Su Commemorates Labor Day in Pittsburgh

Julie Su (’94), Acting U.S. Secretary of Labor, authored a featured commentary for TribLIVE.com highlighting the Department of Labor’s current initiatives to create jobs, empower workers and protect workers’ rights (“Why I’m spending Labor Day in Pittsburgh,” Sep. 4). “America is home to a strong and storied labor movement. . . . That includes in the proud union town of Pittsburgh, where I’m marching today in one of the oldest and largest Labor Day parades in the country. . . . [T]o deliver on the promise of good jobs in every community, we need to continue recruiting, training, and hiring local workers to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure and to create a diverse, skilled workforce pipeline that includes veterans, Black workers, women, people with disabilities, workers of color, rural workers, justice-impacted individuals, those without a four-year degree, and more.”
