Companies Get Freer Rein Over Apprenticeships With Trump Order

President Donald Trump wants to spend more money on apprenticeships and give private companies more flexibility in designing programs to help fill some of the 6 million open jobs in the Unites States. The executive order doesn't refer to specific restrictions, but does order the Labor Department to create industry-recognized apprenticeship programs, which involves determining how third parties such as non-profit organizations and unions can provide recognition to apprenticeship programs.
"We're empowering these companies, these unions to go out and create new apprenticeships for millions of our citizens", President Trumpsaid. "Apprenticeships place students into many jobs without the crippling debt of four-year college degrees".
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. "A report that former President Barack Obama's Commerce Department released in 2016 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. The money would come from existing job-training programs.
Trump seems to be sending some mixed signals when it comes to job training.

But apprenticeships are just one slice of a much larger workforce development pie.

The Trump administration has said there is a need that can be met with a change in the American attitude towards vocational education and apprenticeships.
Governor Scott Walker said that President Trump's visit to Wisconsin highlights alternative education to fill the skills gap in manufacturing jobs. "America must not only teach but celebrate the skilled laborers that produce and maintain the world's greatest machines, buildings, products and infrastructure, innovations that improve our quality of life, help keep us safe, and have the power to inspire, awe, and wonder", said President Trump.
