Casey Statement on Labor Day

WASHINGTON, DC— U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) today released the following statement on Labor Day:

"This Labor Day, as we honor the hard working men and women who have helped make this the greatest nation on earth, we should recommit ourselves to putting people back to work. The unemployment rate in Pennsylvania and across the nation is unacceptably high and there is no time to waste in creating jobs.  The Small Business Job Creation Tax Credit Act which I introduced earlier this year and my bipartisan Life Sciences Jobs Act are common-sense measures that will fuel our economy and create jobs.  I am hopeful that when Congress reconvenes this week, there will be bipartisan consensus around these kind of practical solutions to generate opportunities for the finest workforce in the world.”
