The Spirit Of Frances
Focused on issues affecting the common citizen, the Department of Labor has always been proud of its history and heroes. Frances Perkins—the first woman and longest serving Secretary of Labor—is an office favorite, and her spirit is alive and well with the main building named her honor and the continual political support of women’s labor issues still championed by the department.

Up On The Rooftop
Located in Washington, D.C., the architecture of the Department of Labor was designed to take advantage of the historic beauty of nearby national monuments. With its outdoor rooftop space, employees and visitors alike can take in breath taking views of the Capitol Building and Washington Monument, watch Fourth of July fireworks, host events like the Discovery Space Shuttle viewing, or simply enjoy lunch and conversation in the sunshine.
