Please join the NJ Work Environment Council and New Labor for Workers’ Memorial Day, April 24, 2022!
Office of New Labor, 55 Paterson Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
Every year, working people and their organizations observe Workers’ Memorial Day at the end of April to remember those who have gotten injured or died on the job and to renew our commitment for safe workplaces. Each year thousands of workers are killed and millions more injured or diseased because of their jobs. We need to make sure that worker health and safety rights are guaranteed to all, in all workplaces! As Mother Jones taught us, “we pray for the dead, but fight like hell for the living.”
