Wolf, Trump talk workforce reforms during White House meeting
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) met with President Donald Trump in Washington Thursday during a meeting focused on criminal justice and workforce reforms.
Wolf joined a bipartisan group of eight governors – six Republicans and two Democrats – who are working with the President. It’s part of the Trump administration’s criminal justice reform. The two sides discussed improving professional licensure and promote worker mobility, among other potential changes.
The Governor pitched Pennsylvania’s recently passed Clean Slate Act, which expanded criminal record sealing among other changes.
“We are trying to do more in terms of training and education,” Wolf said following the meeting. “Those are things that we can actually come together and say yeah, we disagree on a lot of things. But we agree that we actually need to have a skilled workforce and we need to invest in that.”
Wolf said the White House invited him to the roundtable. The meeting lasted an estimated 90 minutes.
