WOODBRIDGE, VA — In celebration of Labor Day, Delegate Hala Ayala, Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor, released the following statement in honor of America’s labor movement and workers.
“As the proud product of a union family, I’m thrilled to celebrate Virginia workers and our nation’s labor movement this Labor Day. As we reflect on the tireless advocacy of labor movements that brought us weekends, workplace safety, overtime pay, sick leave, and so much more, we must remember that these achievements are the floor — not the ceiling.”
“In addition to maintaining Virginia’s status as #1 in the nation for business, we must also prioritize being #1 for workers. I’ve spent my career championing Virginia’s workers by fighting to raise the minimum wage and delivering collective bargaining for public sector employees. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll partner with labor unions to build on our progress and move our Commonwealth forward.”
