New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli offered this message ahead of the Labor Day holiday:
Even in the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, New York’s dedicated workforce made sure the lights stayed on and kept us supplied with the indispensable things we need to keep our lives running. This long Labor Day weekend, as we continue to cautiously reopen many of the businesses and institutions that were closed, let’s remember to thank those hardworking men and women who have been on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.
To all those who look after our children, protect our communities, heal us, feed us, get us to work and more, Thank You! You are the bedrock of our communities.
