"Every year, on the first Monday in September, we honor the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
In advance of Labor Day 2012, Secretary Hilda Solis -- "America's Job Counselor" -- will host a live Twitter chat at 2 p.m. EDT, Thursday, August 30.
This is a great opportunity, especially for high school and college students, to ask questions and receive information on entering the workforce, finding job training programs and identifying up-and-coming careers.
Join the conversation by using the hashtag #LaborDay2012 or tweet questions in advance to @HildaSolisDOL."You can register for the event and find more information at http://webapps.dol.gov/DOLEvents/Event/View/107/Labor-Day-Twitter-Chat.
