WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to highlight workforce development and economic opportunity during a visit to Rockwell Automation. Secretary Scalia toured Rockwell Automation’s new manufacturing line that is set to open in spring 2020 and met with veteran candidates from the company’s Academy of Advanced Manufacturing workforce training program. The Secretary also participated in a roundtable discussion at Rockwell Automation with local business and community leaders, including the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce.
“Employers like Rockwell Automation understand that veterans are uniquely qualified to make significant contributions to America’s workforce,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “Under President Trump’s economic leadership, businesses are expanding, millions of jobs are being created, and Americans are more confident about their economic future.”
