I want you hired: Trump calls for a nation of apprentices

Sveva Terracina | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:50

"We are excited about working with the administration to help create more job and career opportunities in the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry through apprenticeship", said Rob Gifford, the NRAEF's executive vice president, in a statement.

By seeking to expand apprenticeships and other trade training programs, Trump said more Americans would be able to find fulfilling work.

"We're empowering these companies, these unions, industry groups, federal agencies, to go out and create new apprenticeships for millions of our citizens", he said.

Trump accepted a challenge earlier this year from a CEO to create 5 million new apprenticeships.

President Donald Trump said Monday he'll announce an initiative later this week aimed at getting technical training apprenticeships for people without college degrees.

US Labour Secretary Alex Acosta said the president knows that apprenticeship programs offer demand-based skills and good, stable jobs with reduced or no student debt.

Still, a November 2016 report by the U.S. Commerce Department under President Barack found that "apprenticeships are not fully understood in the United States, especially by employers, who tend to use apprentices for a few, hard-to-fill positions", but not as widely as they could, according to NPR.

A well-designed apprenticeship system - one that combines classroom instruction with paid, on-the-job training in a specific trade - has the potential to help USA companies grow, reduce their need for foreign talent, liberate young people from the burdens of college debt, and provide low-income Americans with a pathway to the middle class.

The new program, overseen by the Department of Labor, will cost an estimated $200 million and fill some six million vacant jobs in the country.

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

So-called industry-certified apprenticeship programs would undermine quality apprenticeshipsUndermines the definition of apprenticeship. President Trump can not claim to support American workers with apprenticeships when his budget tells a different story.

Trump said the learn-and-earn arrangements are going to be "a big, big factor" in his effort to add jobs employers are having trouble filling.

NPR reports that now there are more than 6 million jobs open in the US that could benefit from an apprenticeship, but only a mere 500,000 such apprenticeships now exist.

"We're excited that the momentum on apprenticeships continues", says Eric Seleznow, former deputy assistant secretary at the Labor Department under Obama and an adviser at the nonprofit Jobs for the Future.

"The best anti-poverty, anti-crime, anti-violence program is a job", Durbin said.

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

UPDATED Currently, federal student aid can be used only in programs eligible under federal law: an institution of higher education, a proprietary institution of higher education, or a postsecondary vocational institution, according to Karen McCarthy, the director of policy analysis for the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.

President Trump's budget, he's proposed a 40 percent cut in job training. "You're not going to have companies fleeing like in the past", he said.

Yet Trump's executive order appeared to defend that philosophy: "Finally, federally funded education and work force development programs that do not work must be improved or eliminated so that taxpayer dollars can be channeled to more effective uses". The Obama administration dedicated $90 million to apprenticeship programs, the same amount that's in Trump's proposed budget.

The White House is dubbing it "workforce development week" and has filled the president's schedule with workplace visits, speeches and roundtable discussions on the subject.
