Jordan Goldstein is the Associate Director of Government Relations at Coalition for a Prosperous America. He was formerly a Special Assistant in the Office of U.S. Secretary of Labor Gene Scalia, and has led successful programming and institution-building for elite, politically-minded college students across the country.
Jordan works on a number of policy issues at CPA, with a focus on trade enforcement and industrial policy that touches on issues of forced labor, tariffs, critical supply chain reshoring, solar, pharmaceuticals, workforce development, and American competitiveness.
In his capacity working for Secretary Scalia, he supported and advised the Secretary and his Chief of Staff on policy matters, including agency rule-making on independent contractor status under the Fair Labor Standards Act and U.S. trade enforcement policy concerning goods made with forced labor, particularly in China. He also managed all White House Staff Secretary communications, which required him to frequently liaise with agency heads and review executive-level memoranda, executive orders, proclamations, and op-eds.
For his education, Jordan studied at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations – the premier institution in the world for the cross-disciplinary study of work – where he enjoyed classes on economic history and law. Jordan has also studied at yeshivas in Israel and the United States where he delved into Jewish law and philosophy.
