Obama's Labor Day Speech: 'America there are no second-class citizetalkingpointsmemo...

tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com — We remember that the rights and benefits we enjoy today were not simply handed out to America's working men and women. They had to be won.

They had to be fought for, by men and women of courage and conviction, from the factory floors of the Industrial Revolution to the shopping aisles of today's superstores. They stood up and spoke out to demand a fair shake; an honest day's pay for an honest day's work. Many risked their lives. Some gave their lives. Some made it a cause of their lives-like Senator Ted Kennedy, who we remember today.

That's the lesson of this day-that some things are always worth fighting for. Equal pay. Fair wages. Dignity in the workplace. Justice on the job. An economy that works for everyone, because in America there are no second-class citizens. An economy where you can make a living and care for your families. Where you leave your kids something better.

That is the calling to which we are summoned this Labor Day. That is the cause of my presidency. And that is the commitment we must fulfill to preserve the American Dream for all of America's working families.

GREAT JOB PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR NOT STOOPING TO THE ALL TIME LOW OF THE GRANDE OLE RACIST KLAN-EXCELLENT SPEECH.

The white racist kkk party should be very embarrased no matter if you agree/disagree with the president.

Shows the true colors as if the whole world does not already know that the republican party is an embarrassment to society as a whole.

Great day for Dems!
