Governor’s Weekly Message: Supporting our Workforce, Strengthening our Economy

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, September 4, 2015



Dover, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell emphasis the original intent of Labor Day and statewide efforts to support our workforce.

“When Congress established Labor Day as a national holiday more than 100 years ago, it marked a seminal moment in the movement to establish the rights of all workers,” said Governor Markell. “Today, we have our own responsibilities to better serve working families. Our state must prioritize initiatives like retraining for workers in shrinking fields, as well as investments in the great teachers, hands-on programs, and higher education opportunities that will prepare our next generation for success. By giving our workers the support to make the most of their talents, we’ll honor the purpose of Labor Day, and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
