I've just gotten into Dataflow lately and am very disappointed to discover today that labels are not supported on Dataflow jobs (I first learned about this at https://registry.terraform.io/providers/hashicorp/google/latest/docs/resources/dataflow_flex_template_job#labels where it is stated "This field is marked as deprecated in Terraform as the API does not currently support adding labels.")
We use GCP labels extensively. For example, we prefer not to have a plethora of GCP projects, instead we choose to deploy to let our multiple developers deploy GCP resources into a single project and we use labels to segregate the cost of each developer's working environment. If Dataflow is to become something that we use then we need to be able to segregate the cost of running it - for that we need labels.
Please add labels to Dataflow jobs and allow them to be set via the Dataflow API.
