Happy Labor Day Eugene!

Eugene really has something special to celebrate on this Labor Day. I am so proud of our city for passing Eugene's historic earned paid sick time ordinance and of Eugene residents for embracing it. Lots of hard work went into getting the 5 - 3 vote in favor of the new law that will give the hardest working hourly workers in our town a little more dignity, healthier working conditions, and much needed security. I am committed to making sure this is only the first of many more worker-friendly policies implemented to re-build our middle class and re-balance the scales of our economic system. Let's keep the momentum going!
