Trump pushing job training as employers search for workers

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is pressing U.S. companies and trade associations to bolster their job training opportunities as employers search for qualified skilled workers to fill vacancies.

Trump is set to hold a White House event with corporate leaders, workers and students to promote apprenticeships, vocational opportunities and job training.

The president is asking companies and trade organizations to sign a pledge to provide the training for their workforce. Some of the companies signing the pledge include General Motors, FedEx, The Home Depot and IBM.

The pledge — along with an executive order creating a national council for U.S. workers and a workforce policy advisory board — aims to address the needs of manufacturing workers as the president has engaged in multiple trade disputes that have rattled the economy.
