News Release - A Labor Day Message from Mayor Lovely A. Warren

City of Rochester

News Release

(Monday, Sept. 4, 2017) – Rochester’s workers are and always have been this city’s greatest asset. As our economy has transitioned from one industrial sector to the next, from flour to flower, from manufacturing to innovation, Rochester’s labor force has embraced each new change with a spirit of determination and ingenuity that has encouraged new investment and attracted job creators. Our workforce helped Rochester navigate the economic downturns of the last century; our workforce, and the organized labor movement, is placing Rochester at the leading edge of progress in this century.

As we celebrate the Labor Day holiday this year, I would like to extend my heartfelt appreciation for our workers and their work ethic. They have laid the foundation upon which this city is built, which makes it possible for us to advance our efforts to create more jobs, safer, more vibrant neighborhoods and better educational opportunities for all of our citizens.
