Message on the Observance
of Labor Day, 2000

September 1, 2000

    Warm greetings to all Americans as we celebrate Labor Day and honor 
the millions of working men and women across our nation whose 
achievements have brought us to this moment of unprecedented economic 
strength and prosperity.
    When I took office in 1993, I committed my Administration to putting 
in place an agenda to get America back on its economic feet while 
restoring the values of opportunity, responsibility, and community. I 
believed that we could create a strong economy that was pro-labor as 
well as pro-business; that was pro-family as well as pro-work. I am 
proud that we succeeded in raising the minimum wage, signing into law 
the Family and Medical Leave Act, and cutting taxes for millions of low-
income working families by doubling the earned income tax credit. And 
today, thanks to the hard work, creativity, and determination of the 
American people, our country is enjoying the longest economic expansion 
in our history, with more than 22 million new jobs, the lowest 
unemployment rate in 30 years, the lowest African American and Hispanic 
unemployment rates ever recorded, the lowest female unemployment rate in 
40 years, and the smallest welfare rolls in 35 years.
    But there is still much to do if we are to build the future we want 
for our children. We must use this rare moment of peace and prosperity 
to protect Social Security, modernize Medicare, provide prescription 
drug coverage for our nation's senior citizens, and enact a strong and 
enforceable Patients' Bill of Rights. We must raise the minimum wage 
again so that all our workers are able to earn a decent income. We must 
bridge the digital divide and encourage new investments in underserved 
regions so that every American community shares in the promise and 
opportunity of today's dynamic economy. And we must provide America's 
children with the quality education they need to reach their full 
    The 20th century was a time of enormous growth and progress for our 
nation, in large part because of the skill, imagination, and dedication 
of America's workers. As we celebrate the first Labor Day of this new 
century, let us honor and thank the working men and women of our nation 
by building on their accomplishments to create a brighter future for all 
our people.
    Best wishes for a wonderful holiday.
                                                  Bill Clinton

Remarks at a Dinner for Hillary Clinton in Syracuse, New York

September 1, 2000

    Thank you very much. Well, first, I want to thank Duke and Billie 
for having us here. I want to thank the neighbors in the back for 
putting up the bathrooms. [Laughter] And I want to thank the neighbors 
across the street for putting up with the sound. Hello, folks! How are 
you over there? You get to hear my pitch for free. I want you to vote 
for Hillary, too. [Laughter]
    We've all had a good time, and I want to hear the musicians some 
more. And we've got a magician, and I want to see this. I spent 8 years 
trying to be one. [Laughter] So I just want to say a couple of words 
    First of all, I want to thank the people of New York, including the 
people of Syracuse and central New York, for being so good to me and 
Hillary and Al and Tipper Gore for the last 8 years. It's meant a lot to 
me. Secondly, I want to thank my buddy Terry McAuliffe and his family 
for being like a second family to Hillary and me. And little Jack

[[Page 1998]]

is out there passing out Hillary stickers. He even gave me one. He 
wasn't sure who I was for. [Laughter] And he wanted to make sure I 
didn't go soft on him between now and election day, so I appreciate 
    I don't know what I can say to you, because you know where I stand 
on this election. But I think there are a couple of points I'd like to 
make that I know. First of all, you should know that to an extraordinary 
extent, Hillary has played a substantive, positive role in the work 
we've done over these last 8 years. Everything we've done in education, 
health care, and helping people balance work and family and taking care 
of kids, she's had a hand in--from the family and medical leave law in 
1993 to our efforts right through this year to promote adoption and to 
take better care of foster kids and to take care of those kids that go 
out on their own in the world with nobody to take care of them--and I'm 
really proud of that--to getting 2 million kids health insurance to all 
the things we've done to open the doors of college for all. We now have 
10 million people getting tax credits for college education today. And 
she has fought for every single one of those things. I'm very proud of 
    The second thing I want you to know is, because economics is an 
issue in central New York and north of here, when I was Governor of 
Arkansas for 12 years, we had to completely turn the economy around. We 
did not have an unemployment rate below the national average, until I 
ran for President in 1992, for a decade. And we worked for 10 long 
    During that time, my wife went on the boards of three Arkansas 
companies--or two Arkansas companies and one other company--and learned 
what it would take to get people to invest money and to bring jobs to 
places that had been left behind. And I'm just telling you, of your 
choices in the Senate race, you've got one person that spent a serious 
10 years working to redevelop the economies of places that aren't doing 
as well as they ought to be doing. And that's experience. It's money in 
the bank for you, and you ought to take advantage of it.
    Now, the third thing I want to say is, I think she can have an 
enormously beneficial impact for New York all around the country and all 
around the world. She can help you in all kinds of ways. One of the 
reasons that I--I wanted her to run for the Senate if she wanted to--who 
am I to ever tell anybody not to run for anything? But I said, ``You 
know, you've got to be willing to pay the price. I'm going to India and 
Pakistan, and you can't go. I'm going to Africa, and you can't go. I'm 
going to Colombia, and you can't go.'' So everywhere I go in the world, 
people I don't even know come to me and say--everywhere in the world--
say, ``I am pulling for your wife. I'm sorry she can't be here.''
    At the state dinner the other night in Nigeria, the President of 
Nigeria, one of the most highly regarded leaders of any developing 
country in the world, a decorated army general, gets up in the state 
dinner and says, ``I'm really sorry your wife is not here, but I'm glad 
she's home, and I hope she wins her election.'' Not normally said at 
state dinners.
    I was in Bombay with my daughter, in India, and this woman who 
spends her life going out into villages trying to help millions, 
literally, of women who have been left behind figure out how to borrow 
money, start businesses, and take better care of their kids--all she 
talked about to me was Hillary.
    And I'm telling you that because there is a reason that the people 
that are running against her spend all their time trying to run her 
down. Because they know if the people of New York ever figure out who 
she is, what kind of person she is, what she's done, and what she can do 
for them, she will win in a walk. That's what I want you to do in this 
    I thank you for your contributions, but the most important thing is 
that you realize that elections are decided by people who don't know the 
candidates, not by people who do. And she is running a campaign based on 
the issues and the honest differences between her and her opponent.
    And you know, their campaign is basically try to paint a--try to do
