The New Apprentice: President Trump's EO Says "You're Hired"

"We're empowering these companies, these unions, industry groups.to go out and create new apprenticeships", Trump said at a White House signing ceremony. Democrats have stressed the need to train Americans for the jobs that are available, and Hillary Clinton, Trump's 2016 opponent, made pushing apprenticeship programs a part of her campaign. Instead of starting with Labor Department regulations, these apprenticeships would be largely designed by industries looking to fill specific jobs.

Though the US government has regulated and certified apprenticeships since 1937, former President Barack Obama's administration actively promoted the practice.

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

Khanna added: "It's also important for the President to remember that apprenticeship and workforce development is more than just for the manufacturing industry".

"Apprenticeships place students into great jobs without the crippling debt of traditional four-year college degrees", said Trump. Add to that, news from NPR that only about a half-million of the nation's 146 million jobs were filled by apprentices a year ago, and the challenges of the funding issues crystallize.

While a broad range of experts and industry groups praised the administration's focus on apprenticeships, some anxious about opening up the federal process to outside players.

The new executive order directs the Department of Labor to "use available funding to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeships are not now widespread".

"Many colleges and universities fail to help students graduate with the skills necessary to secure high-paying jobs in today's workforce", the order states.


To improve upon that rate, a White House memorandum follows that point: "Substantial additional growth requires an increase in labor force participation, which requires helping those outside the labor force develop better job skills". The widening labor skills gap is one issue the administration is now looking to address. The Obama administration committed to growing a skilled workforce by investing $265 million in apprenticeship programs with the goals of expanding apprenticeships into new industries and integrating programs into state education and workforce systems, among others.

Undermines credibility and portability of Registered Apprenticeship among employers.

The Trump Administrations budget slashes support for federal job training by 40 percent for disadvantaged adults, dislocated workers, and at-risk youth, ends the Senior Community Service and Employment Program for 67,000 low-income older Americans, and closes Job Corps Centers across the country.

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. Oversight of unregistered programs, critics say, could result in some sham offerings.

The executive order also charges the Secretaries of Defense, Labor, and Education and the Attorney General to promote apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs for several groups including high school students, persons now or formerly incarcerated, and members of the country's armed forces and veterans.

"When I ran for president, I had to leave the show".

Now he and his administration need to highlight programs that work, and provide support to companies, schools and governments - and not incidentally, students - to make them viable for more Americans. "We have to make sure the people are here and they're going to be well trained", Trump said.
