Trump to visit Wisconsin to fill skills gap

Sveva Terracina | 21 Giugno, 2017, 10:21

President Trump on Thursday signed an executive order that seeks to expand apprenticeships, in part by opening the door to alternative education providers and giving industry groups a more active role with the federal apprenticeship program.

Before signing the EO, President Trump said the objective of the order will be to "remov [e] federal restrictions that have prevented many different industries from creating apprenticeship programs". According to a senior administration official, the order would direct the secretary of Labor to develop a process that would encourage private businesses to develop apprenticeship programs as well as establish a business leaders task force on apprenticeships.

The administration says apprenticeships could match workers with the nation's estimated 6 million open jobs but he's reluctant to spend more taxpayer money on the effort.

Although the labor force participation is at Jimmy Carter-era lows, that can change if we equip young Americans with the skills they need to fill high-paying jobs that are now sitting vacant or being filled with imported talent.

President Trump appeared to commit in March to Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff's challenge at a White House CEO roundtable to "take a moonshot goal to create 5 million apprenticeships in the next five years". "There are millions of good jobs that lead to great careers, jobs that do not require a four-year degree or the massive debt that often comes with those four-year degrees and even two-year degrees".

Jobs for the Future, a nonprofit that helps promote skills training and job opportunities for low-income people, supports apprenticeship programs that have the Labor Department's stamp of approval, says the group's president, Maria K. Flynn. An official said both Ivanka Trump and the president will "use the bully pulpit of the White House... to maintain a focus on this issue", CNN reports.

Trump's speech was light on details, but according to the Associated Press, about $200 million will be used for the new program. "We're also joined by some of the country's great governors", Trump said.

President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he's signing an executive order to roll back regulations that prevent certain industries from creating apprenticeship programs.


The president toured a classroom full of tool-and-die machines that simulated a factory floor, accompanied by Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, as his attorney general Jeff Sessions faced questions before the Senate Intelligence Committee on potential Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation and the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Trump's 2018 budget proposal cuts funding for job training programs by 40 percent, from $2.7 billion to $1.6 billion.

Lerman says reducing the requirements for registered programs might make a difference in the number of employers who adopt them. Earlier this week, the president said he would like to see those paid positions at "every high school in America."

"We have regulations on top of regulations", Trump said Thursday.

The administration is also reportedly considering ways that students could use federal money for these new apprenticeship programs.

Walker said he told Priebus that he should, "Tell the president people outside of Washington still like his policies, still very much want him to move this country in the right direction".
