Governor Sean Parnell issued the following statement today in observance of Labor Day:
"On Labor Day, we honor the dignity of workers and safety of America's workforce, which has built this nation into one of enduring strength and opportunity. Alaska, too, has a skilled and resilient workforce. Although our nation and our state still face economic challenges during this recovery from the global recession, now is the time when we rightfully remember and appreciate the contributions Alaskans are making to our state's well-being. We also remember those who are working today, as well as those who are serving our country overseas, keeping us safe. Have a safe weekend."
