Wisconsin business leaders to meet with Trump

His proposed budget May 23 would cut some established federal job training programs significantly.

The Trump administration feels industry and other entities outside of the government can create and run the programs needed to fill open positions and do it more quickly, cheaply and well, an assertion with which the NRA agrees.

That broad-picture promise sounds great.

McCarthy said possible problems with relaxing and outsourcing federal standards for apprenticeships include confusion, fragmentation and potentially registering programs that are too short term or that fail to yield portable credentials.

The order doubles funding for apprenticeship grants to $200 million by pulling money allotted for existing job-training programs. Among other goals, the committee has been tasked with how best to bring industry into the quality-control and oversight side of federally recognized apprenticeships, which have a required educational component and typically last more than two years. On average, apprentices earn around $30,000 per year during the process, though wages may increase over the course of their education, as they become more skilled. She is particularly interested in the growing role of sustainable agriculture and nutrition in food service worldwide and is always ready to move on great story ideas and news tips.

President Trump addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time on February 28th, 2017.

"Apprenticeships provide paid, relevant workplace experiences and opportunities to develop skills that employers value".

One official specially said the White House has worked with Rep. Bobby Scott, a Virginia Democrat, to put the proposal together. The current apprenticeship regulations are complicated and prescriptive so it is anticipated that new Labor Department regulations would be more streamlined and beneficial for all participants.

Instead of starting with Labor Department regulations, the apprenticeships would be largely designed by industries looking to fill specific jobs. We want to get them signed on the dotted line. "We serve about 900 construction apprentices and we're still not keeping up with demand".

"Scaling is the big issue", said Robert Lerman, a fellow at the Urban Institute. Lerman says expanding apprenticeships in the United States is partly a matter of stigma, which he considers to be unfair.

According to the United States president, there are a lot of companies moving into this country. "There's a belief that parents won't accept it". So I want to thank my daughter Ivanka and her leadership.

Not according to his budget. The most recent federal government budget passed with about $90 million for apprenticeships, and Trump so far isn't proposing adding more.

Then what does Thursday's executive order do?

Trump signed an executive order Thursday that aims to create a new channel of approval for apprenticeships.

Lerman says reducing the requirements for registered programs might make a difference in the number of employers who adopt them.

An obscure right-wing group in India ate birthday cake in Trump's honor, even feeding some to a large poster of the 45th president, The Telegraph reported.

Trump said Tuesday during a visit to the state that, "Just backstage, we were negotiating with a major, major incredible manufacturer of phones and computers and televisions, and I think they're going to give the governor a very happy surprise very soon".
