U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez will be in Louisville today to visit a technical training center and participate in a minimum-wage round-table discussion. The visit will begin in the afternoon at the Kentucky Manufacturing Career Center. Perez is scheduled to learn about the skills training initiatives going on there.
The center is funded in part by a career training grant from the U.S. Labor Department. Later Perez will take part in a round-table discussion with local workers on the need for an increased federal minimum wage. That will take place at the Office Environment Co. in downtown Louisville. .
