Governor Sean Parnell issued the following statement for Labor Day:
"This American holiday was created by the people, for the people. This weekend, we thank our nation's workers for building the greatest nation in history. We remember that work is a noble and honorable human endeavor. Human dignity can be found in a good job, and work is the engine of economic growth.
"We also remember that many Alaskans remain on duty so that others may enjoy this time off from work. So I thank our public safety and military employees who are serving. Whatever your plans for the weekend, be safe and enjoy the holiday. Happy Labor Day, Alaska."
