Happy Labor Day

September 04, 2016

Some say Labor Day weekend means the end of the summer, the chance for one last day at the beach or a final summer cookout with family and friends. But remember, the true meaning behind this holiday is its dedication to the achievements of American workers. We’ve got lots to celebrate this holiday weekend, but we can never take the well-being of our workers for granted.

To be sure, the global economy is complex,  but we believe everyone deserves a living wage and a sustainable livelihood. Your purchases from the Good Buy have always supported UUSC human rights programs that advance workers’ rights in the restaurant and agricultural industries.
