Celebrating The Dignity of Work: President Trump Signs Executive Order Promoting Apprenticeships

24 Juin 2017

The Executive Order will streamline the administrative process of the current apprenticeship program by shifting the certification from the Department of Labor to industry; encouraging apprenticeships in colleges, high schools and other entities; and most importantly will double funding for apprenticeship programs.

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 order also proposes to double the amount of money designated for apprenticeship grants from $90 million to almost $200 million per year.

"There aren't enough people to fill the jobs and the people applying don't have the skills necessary", said Conor Smyth, spokesman for the Wisconsin Technical College System, where President and Ivanka Trump, Acosta and Walker were visiting.

And in history, nobody has gotten rid of so many regulations at the Trump administration.

"We will be removing federal restrictions that have prevented many different industries from creating apprenticeship programs", he continued. It directs the Commerce and Labor Secretaries to promote apprenticeships among business leaders in various and critical industry sectors, including cybersecurity, health care, infrastructure, and manufacturing while the Education Secretary is directed to support community colleges and two- and four-year higher education institutions as they incorporate apprenticeship programs into their curricula. Apprenticeships are an "earn while you learn" model that support many Utah families in attaining income stability while supporting employers in developing a skilled pipeline of workers.

Illinois Democratic Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, who, introduced the revised version of the Perkins Act along with Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Glenn Thompson said that he is "heartened" by the Administration's attempt to strengthen apprenticeship programs, although he did not work with the White House on the initiative.

Ivanka Trump will reportedly be working closely with her father on this issue. Trump proposes keeping that funding but cutting other worker training programs.

"And the president knows that apprenticeship programs offer the best way of reducing the skills gap", he said. Currently, half of the country's 1 million apprenticeships are "registered" with the U.S. Department of Labor. And this year's budget passed with about $90 million for apprenticeships.

The Trump administration has said there's a need that can be met with a change in the American attitude toward vocational education and apprenticeships.

Prior to the event on apprenticeships, Trump joined with four people he described as "victims" of the President Barack Obama's health care law on an airport tarmac in Milwaukee.

"While we have the lowest number in terms of unemployment in many many years at the same time I have always argued with that number because it doesn't take into account the millions and millions of people who have given up looking for jobs". It is unclear from the order whether those standards would be the existing federal standards, or new standards developed by the third party or by the DOL.

"There's going to be a big price to pay for companies that want to leave, fire their workers, build a plant outside of this country, and think they're going to sell their product right back into the United States".

The president toured a classroom full of tool-and-die machines that simulated a factory floor, accompanied by Wisconsin Gov. 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 FBI Director James Comey.
