JD VANCE, Senator for Ohio

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator JD Vance (R-OH) issued the following statement marking Labor Day: 

“Labor Day is more than just a commemoration. It’s also a call to action,” said Senator Vance. “For far too long, Washington has been guided by the false promises of globalism and forgotten a basic truth: great nations build great things, because of their great workers.
“But we will never honor that fact until we confront the threats of globalism that hold our nation and its workers back, namely our open border with Mexico and our open wallet to China. American workers deserve an immigration policy that upholds the rule of law and doesn’t undercut their wages. They deserve a trade policy that ends our dependence on China and restores American industry.
“Abandoning the failed promises of globalism will not be easy, but it is what our country owes its workers. There’s much work to be done.”
