Should we require labels to be always visible?

Most of the sites I evaluate these days seem to have placeholder text for
labels. An aria-label helps, but the label still disappears on focus or on
clicking into the field.

Would it help the cognitive community if the label is always visible. So
for placeholder labels, should we require that the label appears near the
field when the user clicks or tabs to the field? Like this?
