The U.S. Secretary of Labor is making two stops in Indiana Tuesday. Alexander Acosta will first meet with officials at Purdue University before traveling to Burns Harbor in northwest Indiana to visit ArcelorMittal.
During his stop at Purdue, Acosta will discuss the award of a $12 million grant to the university to expand apprenticeship opportunities in information technology. He will also join a roundtable and tour of the Purdue Cyber Forensics Lab.
Acosta will then take a tour of the ArcelorMittal facility at Burns Harbor before joining company officials as they sign the Pledge to America’s Workers, which is scheduled for 1:15 p.m. local time. The pledge, according to the White House website, aims to show companies "committing to expand programs that educate, train, and reskill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement."
