U.S. President Barack Obama said in his weekly address Saturday that Labor Day is a day "we set aside every year to honor the hardworking men and women who fought for so many of the rights that we take for granted today."
He said the people involved in the labor movement worked "not just for a bigger paycheck for themselves, but for more security and prosperity for the folks working next to them as well." He said, "That's how we built the great American middle class."
