"Expanding apprenticeships across all industries is a priority for the Trump administration", said U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta
The Trump administration will make it easier for groups such as the American Trucking Associations and the trucking industry to put in place apprentice programs to cross the job skills gap and help address driver and technician shortages, said U.S. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta at ATA’s Management Conference & Exhibition.
Expanding apprenticeships across all industries is a priority for the Trump administration, he said, and an executive order created a new model of industry-recognized apprenticeships.
The Department of Labor will bring together trade and labor groups to design and certify high-quality apprenticeships appropriate for each industry.
While previous administrations have also developed various programs aimed at apprenticeships, Acosta said this will be different.
