From the press release:
Labor Day honors the contributions American workers make to the United States economy, but a new National Labor Scorecard released today by the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR) reveals a mixed bag for workers, who may have less to celebrate and more to be concerned about this year.

This initial National Labor Scorecard, which will be released annually for Labor Day, pulls together a wide range of national indicators to provide a comprehensive picture of the condition of the U.S. workforce. The scorecard provides the latest data on workforce trends from both government and nongovernment sources, and also compares this year’s data with trends over the last decade.
