Brooke's Briefing: Celebrating Labor Day, Honoring our Local Workforce and their Families
September 6, 2021
Happy Labor to all the workers whose efforts help to make the District of Columbia the best city in the world! This past year has been particularly challenging as we have continued to deal with the effects of a global heath pandemic, worked towards economic recovery, and supported residents navigating matters concerning their health, schooling, employment, and so much more.This year has showed us more than any other just how grateful we should be for our workforce. All of our workers – from those serving as first responders and healthcare staffers, to teachers and school administrators, to sanitation workers and nonprofit leaders, and hospitality workers – gave so much of themselves so that we could survive and make the best of all that was happening around us.
