President Barack Obama comes to the “D” for a Labor Day Rally in Hart Plaza

President Barack Obama was joined by legendary singer Aretha Franklin for a rally downtown Detroit at Hart plaza.  President Obama told the Labor Day crowd  that he’s prepared to fight for a new job growth plan, defend organized labor and take steps to “restore the middle class in America,” while five Republican candidates hoping to defeat him next year all called for repealing the major legislation passed so far in Obama’s presidency.

“I’ve seen Detroit prove the cynics and the naysayers wrong,” he said, referring to the U.S. auto industry. “We’re fighting for good jobs with good wages … (and) an economy where hard work pays off and gaming the system doesn’t work.”

The event was free and open to the public.
