Trump to tout apprenticeships as way to fill jobs gap

"Apprenticeships create more affordable education and job training, especially for those Americans who want to work in the hospitality, restaurant and foodservice industry", NRA President and CEO Dawn Sweeney said in the organization's news release. "American companies want to hire". It will also provide more funding and create a task force of business leaders to help promote the programs across new sectors, as well as assess the effectiveness of the job-training programs now in place. They typically involve a combination of mentorship while at work and classroom instruction, usually provided by a community college, over one to six years depending on the type of entrepreneurship. "We're empowering these groups to create new apprenticeships for millions of our citizens". This executive order would create a duplicative system that does not guarantee quality training opportunities and provides fewer safeguards for workers, unlike the proven, existing Registered Apprenticeship model. The task force will also assess whether the job-training programs now in place are even effective. These agencies are to provide certain information about and evaluate the effectiveness of such programs.

"The Secretaries of Defense, Labor, and Education, and the Attorney General, shall, in consultation with each other and consistent with applicable law, promote apprenticeships and pre apprenticeships for America's high school students and Job Corps participants, for persons now or formerly incarcerated, for persons not now attending high school or an accredited post-secondary educational institution, and for members of America's armed services and veterans", the executive order stated.

"This really demonstrates what you can do with apprenticeships with existing dollars", Litow said. Instead, they could be overseen by third parties like companies, unions, and industry groups.

"What is the goal of this alternative system?" This, despite the fact that while on the campaign trail, Walker once said that President Trump would be an "apprentice in the White House". "Apprenticeship has some very clear standards".

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin said in a statement that Trump's "rhetoric doesn't match the reality of the budget cuts". "The skills gap also persists in other sectors", he said.

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

'Scalise took a bullet for all of us'
Though the game pegs Republicans against Democrats, attendees and participating lawmakers showed unity in wake of the shooting. Scalise, who underwent a third surgery Thursday, is listed in critical condition after being shot through the hip.

The National Skills Coalition said it appreciates that the executive order includes a public comment period on new regulations from the Labor Department that relate to the apprenticeship push. "They earn a credential at the end of the process and have all the skills they need to be a manager in the restaurant industry".

"I'll be signing an executive order to expand apprenticeships and vocational training to help all Americans find a rewarding career, earn a great living and love going to work in the morning", Trump said.

"It can not be ignored that the president's proposed 2018 budget slashed funding to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, to the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act, and to adult education", Van Kleunen said.
