Chao Announces Plans for 19th Annual Labor Hall of Fame Ceremony
U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao recently announced that the 19th annual Labor Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 2:30 p.m. EST, in the Great Hall of the department's headquarters building in Washington, D.C.
The ceremony will honor Adolphus Busch, founder of Anheuser-Busch Brewing Co., and William B. Wilson, the first U.S. secretary of labor and former secretary-treasurer of the United Mine Workers of America.
The Labor Hall of Fame, established in 1989 by Friends of the Department and managed since 2000 by DOL, honors posthumously those Americans who have contributed to the field of labor, including industry leaders, public officials, and the American worker.
