DETROIT — This past Monday, state Rep. Brenda Carter (D-Pontiac) joined Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters (MRCC), Sheet Metal Workers Local 80 and the Building and Construction Trade Council for Detroit’s annual Labor Day parade.

“I enjoy walking in the Labor Day Parade every year,” Carter said. “It reminds me of how important it is to celebrate and honor the contributions of workers in our country and state. Even though Labor Day has passed, it is important to never forget how vital Michigan workers are to our state and identity.”

Following the parade, the MRCC held a Family Festival at the newly renamed TCF Center. The festival included rides, a bouncy house, carnival-style games and a catered lunch.
