TRADE SKILLS TRAINING
"Hands-on apprenticeships, where workers earn and learn at the same time, are a proven path to good, secure middle-class jobs. In fact, 87 percent of apprentices are employed after completing their programs, with an average starting wage above $50,000. And apprentices earn a significant premium for their skills—as much as $300,000 more than their peers over a lifetime, according to some studies."
