It's Labor Day in the United States
I've had this photo in the archives for a while now and never got around to posting it but, since it's Labor Day here in the U.S. of A, I thought today was a perfect time.
The name of the statue is Arizona Worker's Memorial
"El Pasaja" and it is located in Wesley Bolin Park in front of the Arizona State Capitol.
The inscription reads "This monument, entitle 'The Passage', honors the men and women, from the earliest territorial miners to the present day workers, who have suffered permanent injury or death on the job. We recall their unique gifts and celebrate the time we shared."
It was funded by a number of workers unions. The artist is Clarke Riedy.
