Apprenticeship Training Programs Discussed on America’s Work Force

Jacob Duritsky, vice president of strategy and research with Team NEO spoke with America’s Work Force on Feb. 27 about apprenticeship training programs.

Duritsky spoke about skilled labor jobs and how they are viable career paths for people. He explained how apprenticeship training programs pay a person livable wages while providing them with on-the-job training. Duritsky said that a lot of people go to college, only to graduate with tons of debt and no idea what they want to do for work. He said a person who completes an apprenticeship earns while they learn and is experienced in their trade upon completion of their training. He talked about how parents should do more research and start conversations with their kids about careers in skilled labor, information technology and other tech and programing.

AFL-CIOBill Samuel, director of government affairs for the AFL-CIO spoke about the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act.
