Foster: Middle class 'backbone of our Democracy'

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, released the following statement in honor of Labor Day:

“Because of the thousands of Americans who have fought for workers’ rights – living wages, safe working conditions and a forty hour work week – America has the strongest middle class the world has ever seen.

“America’s middle class is the backbone of our Democracy and as we continue our recovery from the worst recession since the Great Depression, it is critical that we support middle class workers. This means preparing our workers for 21st Century jobs with education and training. It also means passing pro-growth policies like the Senate immigration bill, which will encourage the creation of new businesses here in America.”
