address on the occasion of Labor Day, President's Press Office
reported. The massage reads:

"Dear Compatriots,

I congratulate you on the occasion of Labor Day.

This traditional holiday glorifies and honors creation and work.

Today's global economic and financial crisis hits hard both the
employers and the employees, however, just as anywhere else in the
world in Armenia too it is the working people who are carrying the
burden of the crisis. The authorities of Armenia are well aware of
it and realize that solutions for the current problems should be
anchored on the protection of the workers' rights and on the social
guarantees provided by the state.

We will do our best to ensure a steady increase of opportunities for
dignified work and dignified pay, while overcoming as soon as possible
the hardships brought by the crisis.

Dear Compatriots,

We all know well that no matter what, the Armenian worker goes on with
his devoted and creative work for the benefit of our country. That
work doesn't stop today either.

Congratulating all of us on the occasion of May 1 holiday, I wish
you peaceful and creative work for the benefit of your families and
advancement of our country."
