At a Labor Day event in Wisconsin Monday, President Barack Obama said, despite a stubborn Congress, and even though Americans wouldn’t always know it by watching the news, the U.S. is progressing economically. By almost every measure, the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office, Obama said to a crowd at Laborfest in Milwaukee. The question now is, are we going to make the right decisions to accelerate this progress, Obama said, highlighting his dedication to an increased minimum wage, equal pay and union representation for workers.
