SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — U.S. Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta is traveling to South Dakota this week to speak about workforce development.
Acosta plans to attend Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s Workforce Development Initiative workshop in Sioux Falls on Thursday.
Daugaard says the goal is to identify new strategies to meet workforce challenges, which he says is an issue nationwide.
Daugaard was elected chairman of the Western Governors’ Association in June, when his colleagues also passed a policy resolution affirming workforce as a priority.
