Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement honoring the contributions of workers in Iowa on Labor Day.

“For generations, Iowans of all walks of life have joined the labor force to provide a better future for their families. Iowa’s workers are the engine that keep our economy going and their contributions should be celebrated every day.

“From our manufacturers and hardworking farmers to the health care professionals on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, workers in Iowa have kept our economy running and our communities safe despite unprecedented challenges.

“A strong work force is a critical part of the prosperity and well-being of our country – which is why I will always support pro-work policies that foster opportunity and job creation.”Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
