Trump Administration Gives Apprenticeships a Much-Needed Boost, says FGA

|

Naples, FL — The Trump administration announced plans this morning to expand and improve the nation’s industry-recognized apprenticeship programs, a wildly popular move that could help thousands enter the workforce.

“With this rule, the Trump administration is signaling that the days of costly, one-size-fits-all approaches are numbered,” said Kristina Rasmussen, vice president of federal affairs at FGA. “Apprenticeships offer an incredible opportunity, particularly for young workers, to receive quality job training through paid, hands-on experience.”

FGA research shows that allowing individuals to satisfy education requirements through on-the-job training in apprenticeships would help young workers, boost incomes, and reduce government dependency. Polling also reveals that expanding apprenticeships is popular with over three-quarters of all voters.
