With the Covid economic shock spurring change across a range of industries, millions of American workers are likely to need job training to adjust. Among the most effective kinds of training is apprenticeship, which affords workers a way to earn a living even as they upgrade their skills.

There is wide bipartisan backing for providing additional resources to support apprenticeship. The National Apprenticeship Act of 2021 mirrors a similar proposal considered by the House and Senate in late 2020.
