President Signs Workforce Executive Order
AGC Participates in White House Event to Sign Job Training Pledge
President Trump signed an Executive Order on July 19, 2018 that establishes the President’s National Council for the America Worker. The council will help develop a national strategy for job training programs which will help streamline and make existing programs more efficient and focusing them on employment outcomes, improve data collection and transparency on program effectiveness and a campaign highlighting in demand careers. The Executive Order will form an advisory board of private sector and government representatives to help ensure the programs being taught in classrooms and workplaces are needed. It also included a pledge by companies and association to educate, train and upskill workers through apprenticeships and on-the-job training. AGC was among organizations signing the pledge through our existing AGC chapter training programs, AGC of America safety training and other AGC of America training programs.
