April 28 is Workers Memorial Day, a day to remember and honor those who lost their lives or have been injured at work.
For the men and women who keep America moving, this holiday is especially poignant. Working on the frontlines of our transportation system is never without risk. Whether working with heavy equipment and machinery or promoting the wellbeing of the traveling public, frontline transportation workers make safety a priority every day.
That is why we support rules and regulations to mitigate fatigue, ensure adequate staffing levels, and advocate for policies that empower working men and women to speak up and stand together. It is also why, this Workers Memorial Day, we are drawing attention to the epidemic of assault that plagues transit workers, and the federal legislation needed to fix this growing problem.
