LANSING — This Labor Day, Democrats throughout the state stood united against Donald Trump’s attacks on working families and workers’ rights. At parades, cookouts, and festivals, the message was clear: Michigan’s working people will hold Trump accountable for his broken promises in 2020.
“Despite his constant promises to stand with workers, Donald Trump has shown himself dead set on undoing the very rights that built our middle class and slashing the wages working families rely on,” said MDP Chair Lavora Barnes. “With the next presidential election on the horizon, the working people of Michigan know they’ve been left behind by Donald Trump, and they will hold him accountable.”
“President Trump continues to turn his back on Michigan workers and organized labor who built our country’s middle class,” said Senator Debbie Stabenow. “We will not forget that this President has repeatedly put special interests, including his own, ahead of what’s best for Michigan.”
“This Labor Day, I’m proud to stand with working families and in opposition to a president who has broken promise after promise to Michigan workers,” said Attorney General Dana Nessel. “We need a president who will fight to lift up our working families, not tear them down at every opportunity he gets. Next November, I know Michiganders will hold him responsible.”
“On Labor Day, we remember the workers who created the middle class and the American dream. Workers from my hometown of Flint played a big part in this fight, putting their jobs and lives on the line to fight for fair pay and safe working conditions during the Flint Sit Down Strike,” said Congressman Dan Kildee. “I am forever grateful for the generations that came before us, which is why I work in Congress every day to support workers and stand up to a president who has shown he has nothing to offer working families but lip service and broken promises. Michigan voters won’t forget how Donald Trump has time and again put special interests and the wealthy before our working families.”
“Every decision I make as a member of Congress is about standing up for workers, but time and again Donald Trump has proven working families are not his priority,” said Congressman Andy Levin. “We need to hold him responsible for the promises he’s broken to Michigan families next November.”
