U.S. Secretary of Labor Scalia Highlights Workforce Development With Business Leaders in Fort Worth, Texas

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia traveled to Fort Worth, Texas, to participate in a roundtable discussion with local business leaders at the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce and to give the keynote address at the Independent Electrical Contractors’ Business Summit. Building on President Trump’s State of the Union message, Secretary Scalia underscored the administration’s efforts to provide the nation’s workers with ample opportunities to gain the skills needed for success in today’s advanced economy. He also emphasized the President’s effort to create more American jobs through historic agreements like the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).

“I heard some of the same points in Fort Worth that I’ve heard in meetings across the country,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “Under President Trump’s economy, businesses are expanding, millions of jobs are being created and Americans are hopeful about their economic future. Through continued deregulatory efforts, trade agreements like USMCA and the Phase I Agreement with China and workforce development, the administration is working to ensure that all Americans participate in this booming economy.”

The mission of the Department of Labor is to foster, promote and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.
