Obama to attend Labor Day event in Detroit

President Barack Obama will travel to Detroit on Sept. 5 to speak at the city's annual Labor Day festivities.

The White House says Obama will speak at a Labor Day event sponsored by the Metro Detroit Central Labor Council.

It will be Obama's second trip to Michigan in a month. Obama visited a battery plant in Holland, Mich., on Aug. 11.

Obama has touted his administration's work to rescue General Motors and Chrysler, which are both headquartered in the Detroit area.
