Commentary: Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Monday recognized the working people of New Mexico, celebrating Labor Day at community events with organized labor, including the New Mexico Federation of Labor, and issuing the following statement:

 “On Labor Day, we pause to commemorate and celebrate the men and women who fought to win protections and rights for all workers across this country. New Mexicans across the state are still advocating for their fellow workers, and I am proud to lead a state where we value those contributions and partner with workforce advocates at every opportunity. "We have a tremendous opportunity to rebuild state government’s relationship with both working families and unions, and I am proud of the progress we’ve made so far. My administration has been and will continue to be proactive in working to reach equitable agreements with labor unions, working to provide long-overdue wage increases for working people across industries, working to support parents who are striving to deliver a brighter future for their children.”
