"Defending our 'Made in America' brand is not just about a slogan or patriotism. When we defend 'Made in America,' we are defending the hard work and innovation of American workers," said Secretary Acosta. Acosta joined President Trump, Vice President Pence and others to discuss the role of certification in ensuring the integrity of the Made in America label.
Speaking to the American Legislative Exchange Council, Secretary Acosta called on state legislators to engage in principled reforms that help the American workforce, including occupational licensing. "By removing barriers, you have the opportunity to create millions of jobs without spending a single dime," he said.
