President Donald Trump endorsed the idea of apprenticeships for US young people on Tuesday.
“We want a future where every high school in America offers apprenticeship opportunities for young citizens — and studying things that they want to study, and studying things that they’re going to be great at,” Trump said at Waukesha County Technical College in Milwaukee on June 13, according to a transcript of his remarks on the White House website.
“Under this vision, high school students could learn, and they could earn,” Trump said. “And, boy, when I say earn, they can make great, great salaries doing something that they love — learn invaluable skills, find a career they love, and enter the workforce faster and without debt.”
“I look forward to hearing from all of you — especially from the students who are here today — great students — who will tell us about their experience learning some of the most important trades in our nation,” Trump said.
“That’s what keeps our nation going. We’re going to do everything we can to support you and help more young people have the opportunities we have here in Waukesha County and its incredible County Technical College.
“I’m very, very impressed with everybody I’ve met. I’m very, very impressed with the facilities, and a lot of very talented people leaving here and going on to something they love, and making a fantastic living.”
