Gallagher Joins Vice President Pence, Secretary Scalia at Marinette Marine
Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today traveled with Vice President Mike Pence and U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia to Marinette Marine to discuss the USMCA, workforce development, and issues impacting the shipyard. During the visit, they toured a Freedom variant of a Littoral Combat Ship and addressed Marinette Marine employees. Rep. Gallagher issued the following statement after the visit.
“Marinette represents the best of our Midwestern values, and I’m grateful that Vice President Pence and Secretary Scalia had the opportunity to see Northeast Wisconsin’s work ethic firsthand” said Rep. Gallagher. “As a Midwesterner himself, Vice President Pence understands the value of hard work, and his speech today laid out a compelling agenda for ways we can continue to create exciting opportunities for workers in Northeast Wisconsin. We have to pass USMCA, we have to find innovative ways to strengthen our workforce, and we have to make sure Marinette continues to build U.S. Navy ships for generations to come.”
