Trump launches apprenticeship program, promises 'great,' 'high-paying' jobs

President Trump today signed an executive order created to expand apprenticeships to train people for millions of unfilled jobs.

Acosta said Monday that the policy would revolve around encouraging more partnerships between business and schools rather than increasing the $90 million the federal government now devotes to apprenticeships.

A rifle-toting U.S. man opened fire at about two dozen Republican lawmakers and staff holding a baseball practice ahead of a charity game, wounding a top congressman and four others. "We have regulations on top of regulations, and in history no one has never gotten rid of so many regulations as the Trump administration".

They say Trump did not collude with Russian Federation and see the investigation as a politically motivated sham that handicaps Trump's ability to execute his agenda, according to one person who advises the White House on how to handle the probe. 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.

"We are excited about working with the administration to help create more job and career opportunities in the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry through apprenticeship", said Rob Gifford, the NRAEF's executive vice president, in a statement.

"We are strongest when we are unified", the 45th president told the nation. That system, they said, would preserve the registration process' quality-control mechanisms while allowing experts in the field to shape programs.

It calls on the federal government to review 43 existing workforce development programs spanning 13 agencies to make them "more accountable and effective", the official said.

The administration also will more actively promote job-training programs and work on establishing universally recognized credentialing and certification, giving the training value similar to that of a college degree.

The shortages for specifically trained workers cut across various job sectors, from construction trades to agriculture, manufacturing, information technology and health care.

A person close to Trump's legal team also said earlier Tuesday that there have been no discussions about firing Mueller.

The executive order aims to address the nation's "skills gap" that have left millions of open jobs unfilled. The number of apprenticeships grew substantially under Obama, from roughly 350,000 in 2010 to more than half a million today. Apprenticeship programs are registered with the DOL, and registration signifies to both workers and employers that the program meets certain standards.

"As we train the next generation to do their jobs, all of us here have to do our jobs, we have to join forces and hands and join together to restore american dream for all of our people", added Mr. Trump. "It's really sort of astounding that you have states that rejected Obamacare and now in the bill they're being penalized for rejecting it".

"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".
