The vast majority of federal government workers are members of the civil service, not members of the “swamp.” They display no political bias as they fulfill the duties assigned to them. Their mission is to support the American people and implement the laws of the land. As it is Public Service Recognition Week, we should take a moment to thank the millions who go to work everyday to do our business. At the Department of Labor, where I worked for years, we established and enforced basic standards of minimum wages and overtime; mining and occupational safety and health; and employment and training, among others. We also produced the labor statistics that guide our country every day.

Let us thank all of these people.
