FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Democratic state lawmakers said Monday they are celebrating the 146th annual Labor Day by pre-filing 15 labor-related legislative proposals.

“Our country has come a long way since the first national Labor Day holiday in 1894, but there is still so much to be done,” House Democratic leaders Joni Jenkins, Derrick Graham and Angie Hatton said in a joint statement. “We believe these bills, if enacted, would further that progress in remarkable ways and strengthen our already second-to-none workforce as we chart a new economic path in the coronavirus era.”
