Trump, working with Ivanka, to push expanded apprenticeship programs

Americans are loath to abandon the dream of seeing their kids graduate from college, even if an apprenticeship is more likely to lead to a well-paying job than a four-year liberal-arts degree.
His executive order shifts more taxpayer money into apprenticeships, allowing people to learn while they earn a paycheck.
Trump's top aides have made it clear that he envisions a far wider reach for apprenticeships than now exists. That county alone has more than 21,000 people aged 16-24 who don't have a job or a high school diploma, the report said.
Another official said both the President and Ivanka Trump, who is said to have been intimately involved in this executive order, will "use the bully pulpit of the White House.to maintain a focus on this issue". 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.
The Trump administration's position is in some ways a continuation of the Obama administration's effort to revive apprenticeships across industries.
"These third parties may include trade and industry groups, companies, nonprofit organizations, unions, and joint labor-management organizations", the order said.
Scott Walker flew to Japan for the weekend of June 2 but he and economic development leaders wouldn't say why.
Trump's budget would cut federal money for job training by 40 percent next year. Since 2007, more than 25,000 SC workers have completed apprenticeships; the number of companies participating in the program has increased from 90 to 880.
"While President Trump is signing an executive order pledging to support apprenticeship programs, the reality is that his 2018 budget will undermine our public workforce system". He knows the existing federal rules well, having served as deputy assistant secretary to the Department of Labor during the Obama administration.
"The Secretary shall use available funding to promote apprenticeships, focusing in particular on expanding access to and participation in apprenticeships among students at accredited secondary and post secondary educational institutions, including community colleges; expanding the number of apprenticeships in sectors that do not now have sufficient apprenticeship opportunities; and expanding youth participation in apprenticeships", the executive order stated.
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. The mission of the task force is "to identify strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeship programs are insufficient".
Expanding the use of federal student aid beyond that legal definition "would be a major shift in how the program operates, and would need Congressional action", McCarthy wrote in an email.
Simultaneously with Trump's comments in the White House, Sen. Rather, it's about choice: offering multiple pathways to education and good jobs. The executive order would leave it to industry to design apprenticeships under broad standards to be set by the Labor Department.
"The strength of our nation will be determined by our ability to keep jobs in America, and we re going to keep them in America".
