Source: 恒星英语学习网    2017-09-13   English BBS   Favorite  

On the first Monday of September every year, the United States pauses to honor its workers and the contributions they make to our nation’s prosperity.On September 5, 1882, more than 10,000 men and women paraded through the streets of Manhattan to celebrate the first Labor Day.New York’s Central Labor Union organized the day of celebration in honor of the workers who fought to secure higher wages, shorter hours, and better working conditions for laborers.

American workers transformed the United States and the world with a quality of life never before seen in history.American farmers export more food than any country in the world.The United States is the largest exporter of refined petroleum in the world.It exports more than 40 percent of the world’s spacecraft and aircraft and more than 11 percent of the world’s electronics.

A key element in America’s economic success is the freedom that every American enjoys – the freedom to choose their work,the freedom to innovate and create new industries and revitalize old ones.

“We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example we will shine for everyone to follow.” (President Trump)
