Trump to tout apprenticeships as way to fill jobs gap

The White House noted that there are now six million job vacancies in the United States, the highest number in almost 40 years, but workers don't necessarily have the skills to fill them.

Trump will issue a directive Wednesday meant to boost apprenticeships by expanding industry-certified programs, according to people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. federal government spends $90 million a year on dedicated apprenticeship programs; accounting for both education and training, the German system costs $27 billion.

Illinois Democratic Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, who, introduced the revised version of the Perkins Act along with Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Glenn Thompson said that he is "heartened" by the Administration's attempt to strengthen apprenticeship programs, although he did not work with the White House on the initiative.

"The Secretary shall use available funding to promote apprenticeships, focusing in particular on expanding access to and participation in apprenticeships among students at accredited secondary and post secondary educational institutions, including community colleges; expanding the number of apprenticeships in sectors that do not now have sufficient apprenticeship opportunities; and expanding youth participation in apprenticeships", the executive order stated.

Companies can also set up non-registered apprenticeship programs, which many companies, such as Adobe, have done.

Signing the order at the White House, Trump said he wants to "remove restrictions that have prevented industries from creating apprenticeship programs".

$197,055 - What an employed person in that above cohort would pay in federal income taxes over his or her lifetime if employed, according to the report.

Despite many available job vacancies, millions of American workers do not have the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to thrive in a 21st century economy, the White House said in a fact sheet. "In little companies, you have Mildred who does HR and does all the payroll, and your'e asking her to do all the paperwork for a registered apprenticeship program".

"We want a future where every high school in America offers apprenticeship" options, Trump told participants in a vocational program at a community college in Wisconsin on Tuesday.

In Donald Trump, apprenticeships may have found their ideal salesman. Labor will provide oversight on the program.

And following the executive order, Trump is expected to call on Congress to act. Instead, they could be overseen by third parties like companies, unions, and industry groups.

"What is the objective of this alternative system?"

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta released a memo Monday asking federal agencies to eliminate regulations that could create obstacles for apprenticeship programs but didn't include examples of rules that could impede such programs. "That's why it works so well".

The Department of Labor to date has been very prescriptive and very restrictive on the apprenticeship programs, but the Department of Labor is not an expert as to various individual sectors and what the qualifications are.

Business groups welcomed the administration's move, however.

The Business Roundtable had a similar message.

The Trump administration has yet to spell out how it would close the completion gap.

But while President Trump is pushing for more apprenticeship training, many educators and school administrators say he's not putting his money where his mouth is.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday that removes regulations on apprenticeships.

The Trump administration feels industry and other entities outside of the government can create and run the programs needed to fill open positions and do it more quickly, cheaply and well, an assertion with which the NRA agrees. "And that's exactly what we're doing", said President Trump.
