Can we make apprenticeships great again? In many cases, automation is changing the workforce faster than we can keep up. Manufacturers say they expect to have millions of unfilled positions. Adapting apprenticeship programs could help close the expanding wage and skills gaps by giving people another option for job training. If you're interested in reading more about the pros and cons to apprenticeships here are some helpful links that I used for my research: Department of Labor: www.dol.gov/general/topic/training/apprenticeship Cost analysis study from Case Western Reserve University: www.esa.doc.gov/sites/default/files/the-benefits-and-costs-of-apprenticeships-a-business-perspective.pdf Deloitte: www2.deloitte.com/us/en/pages/manufacturing/articles/boiling-point-the-skills-gap-in-us-manufacturing.html Brookings Institute: www.brookings.edu/blog/social-mobility-memos/2017/08/28/trump-gets-something-right-apprenticeships-and-social-mobility/ And here's an interesting chart about STEM majors: www.census.gov/dataviz/visualizations/stem/stem-html/ Subscribe to our channel! goo.gl/0bsAjO Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.
