Friends,


As you and I know, North Carolinians are second to none when it comes to hard work and entrepreneurial spirit, and can-do attitude. Thatís a big reason our state is regularly listed as one of the top states for business.
 
What makes our workers the best in the nation, you ask?
 
To start, we were taught the value of a hard dayís work at a young age. We saw our parents work hard, and they instilled in us that same work ethic. In fact, I bet many of you grew up working summers as a kid. My first job was working construction every summer with my dad while I was in high school. I continued to work my way through college and held several jobs Ė including working as a waiter, a Radio Shack clerk, a Belkís salesperson and a call center operator. Iím sure many of you have had similar experiences.
 
At the same time, our state also has a diverse and high-skilled workforce. Thatís due in part to our stateís top-notch research and development, the best universities and community colleges, and the technology and innovation that comes with it.
 
As we approach Labor Day, we have a lot to celebrate. This is a time to recognize our workers Ė you. Itís a time to honor the contributions of our incredible workforce Ė past and present. And itís a time to celebrate the men and women whose tireless work and innovation built our nation and keep it strong.
 
By the same token, we are also celebrating your contribution to our economy. Did you know U.S. productivity once again exceeded expectations, growing 2.3%? This productivity is because of your hard work, and itís a key component to raising living standards across our nation. This greater productivity will continue to contribute to bigger paychecks and a higher standard of living for workers and families.
 
Thatís promising news, especially considering paychecks are up well over 3% in July, making it the 12th straight month where year-over-year wage gains were at least 3%.
 
While there is still room for improvement, these higher wages are making a difference in peopleís lives. A recent poll showed a majority of Americans "rate their own finances as good or excellent." This is also thanks in part to and our historic tax cuts and efforts to cut through bureaucratic red tape so small business can start, grow and hire more employees.
 
Hardworking families are seeing more money in their paychecks.
 
At the end of the day, the recognition truly goes to you Ė the mothers and fathers who work to create better lives for their children, the students who study diligently to get good jobs, the entrepreneurs who put in long hours to turn their ideas into jobs, and the farmers who toil their lands to provide for our community. Our state is open for business because of your hard work and entrepreneurial spirit.
 
While weíve made good progress and our economy is doing well, there are still many who are struggling to make ends meet. I will continue to work on pro-growth solutions to fight poverty, strengthen job-training programs, rebuild our infrastructure, and improve opportunities for everyone.
 

Until next week
