Labor Day

As we approach Labor Day, MOJ readers may be interested in reading the Labor Day Statement of the U.S. Catholic Bishops, which can be accessed here.   The statement reminds us that "the moral dimensions of work and workers' rights are at the core of our Catholic social tradition," and that too many workers, both in the United States and in the rest of the world, still lack decent wages and working conditions and many others do not have the opportunity to work at all.

The statement also addresses the failed debate on immigration reform, recognizing that "at is core, immigration is about workers who come to our land to try to better lives for themselves and their families by their labor."

Previous Labor Day statements of the U.S. Catholic Bishops are available here.
