U.S. Labor Secretary Hila Solis is set to visit Toledo Tuesday, her second stop in the Glass City in less than two years.
Solis will vist Toledo Jeep Supplier Park before touring the Willard & Kelsey Solar Group in Perrysburg in the afternoon.
Part of President Barack Obama's call to "Build America," Solis' visit will give the White House an opportunity to discuss with Toledo-area residents how upgrades to America's infrarstructure and investments in building innovation will help create sustainable jobs.
At Jeep, Solis is expected to meet with skilled workers who have led the auto industry to recovery with the aid of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
In June 2009, Solis stopped in Perrysburg to announce the release of over $88 million in federal aid to help unemployed Ohio workers.
