U.S. Secretary of Labor Scalia Highlights Workforce Development In Le Center, Minnesota

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia traveled to Le Center, Minnesota, where he joined Congressman Jim Hagedorn (MN-01) to highlight safely re-opening America’s economy. Secretary Scalia and the Congressman toured the candy-making company Maud Borup, where they met with employees and company leadership. The Secretary then participated in a roundtable with the Congressman and local Minnesota business leaders.

“I was pleased to visit Minnesota and speak with workers and business owners who are working hard to rebuild our economy,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “The President’s actions to lower taxes, knock down unnecessary regulatory barriers, and negotiate fair and reciprocal trade agreements will be key contributors to the continuing economic recovery in Minnesota and across the country. I would like to thank Congressman Hagedorn for joining me today and for being a valuable partner in rebuilding Minnesota’s economy.”

"With today's news of record-breaking GDP growth, it is clear the tax cutting, deregulating, U.S. energy independence, and free and fair trade policies I support with the Trump administration are working for the American people,” said Congressman Jim Hagedorn. “And it was great to be able to discuss how we can continue to promote economic opportunity and job growth with Secretary Scalia and small business leaders in southern Minnesota today. I look forward to continue working with the Secretary and his team on behalf of American workers and families."   

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.
