“This weekend, we honor American workers. They are the backbone of our country and help make America the economic superpower that it is today. But now, they need a boost more than ever. Whether it’s extending unemployment benefits for those searching for work or reforming health insurance to ensure quality coverage for all Americans, workers and their families deserve support from their elected leaders to relieve some of the tremendous burden they feel on a daily basis.
“While there are tremendous efforts already underway to create new jobs and stabilize the economy, there is still much work to be done and more challenges ahead of us.
“I hope we all take time this weekend to reflect on the contributions of the millions of working families across Nevada and the rest of the country.”
