The Trump administration is putting new priority on apprenticeship, promising to expand the number of apprentices nationwide by means of what the White House calls “employer-driven apprenticeship” programs – those not registered with the U.S. Department of Labor or state governments. The Trump initiative began with an executive order, followed by a task force made up of employers, educators and union leaders. The task force issued recommendations in May 2018.
