In his campaign promise to make America great again, President Donald Trump vowed to “bring jobs back to America” and revitalize the labor industry. Now, one hundred days into the Trump presidency, some are wondering: Where are all of those jobs?

Believers say job creation is right around the corner, while critics argue little has been done, as Trump has mostly focused on rhetoric instead of policy. In an effort to untangle such labor issues, professors Julian Zelizer and Sam Wang interview Christopher P. Lu '88, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Labor. In this episode, Lu provides an inside look at the Department of Labor as well as the Trump transition. Listen to "Politics & Polls."
