New Trump Order Seeks To Tear Down Regulations, Build Up Apprenticeships
June 15, 2017
President Donald Trump acted Thursday to demolish a bureaucratic infrastructure that he said needed to be removed to allow America’s companies to create apprenticeships that will provide jobs for millions.
To do so, he signed an executive order that will more than double the amount of money delegated to apprenticeship programs from $90 million to almost $200 million annually.
Trump also vowed to increase federal grants to support companies that launch apprenticeship programs in fields such as information technology, as well as more traditional areas like the construction trades. He said the money to support these apprenticeships would come from under-performing job training programs.
Currently, apprenticeships must meet federal requirements, making the creation of new apprenticeship program a complex and complicated process.

Presidential Executive Order Expanding Apprenticeships in America – Executive Order
Purpose. America’s education systems and workforce development programs are in need of reform. In today’s rapidly changing economy, it is more important than ever to prepare workers to fill both existing and newly created jobs and to prepare workers for the jobs of the future. Higher education, however, is becoming increasingly unaffordable. Furthermore, many colleges and universities fail to help students graduate with the skills necessary to secure high paying jobs in today’s workforce. Far too many individuals today find themselves with crushing student debt and no direct connection to jobs.
Policy. It shall be the policy of the Federal Government to provide more affordable pathways to secure, high paying jobs by promoting apprenticeships and effective workforce development programs, while easing the regulatory burden on such programs and reducing or eliminating taxpayer support for ineffective workforce development programs.
President Trump is living up to his goals and putting people first. The Democrats and liberals who are determined to stop him deserve to be jailed.
The more they gritch and groan, the more they show the rest of us how lucky we are to have voted for our country and how terrified they are.
Winning looks great.
