During these past few weeks as the White House is struggling to control its messaging, First Daughter Ivanka Trump came up with the potential solution for the problem, as she will be spearheading an upcoming “workforce development week.”
A series of events will be held by the administration, lasting from Tuesday to Thursday, all with the goal of highlighting vocational training as well as professional apprenticeships – a concept which was inspired by the first daughter’s trip to Berlin back in April.
This creative new initiative comes right after ‘infrastructure week,’ a concept which had been mocked by online trolls after it had been overshadowed by the former FBI Director and a definition of a hoax person, James Comey, during his testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, but that doesn’t change the fact that great things can be achieved with it.
The initiative for a development week was announced by the White House with the goal of encouraging businesses to create apprenticeship programs, and reorganize their existing ones to maximize the efficiency of $16.7 billion funding annually.
According to Ivanka, the base ground for her ideas served her tour of the Siemens Technik Akademie during her most recent trip to Germany, adding:
‘The reality is that there are still Americans seeking employment despite low unemployment rates, and companies are struggling to fill vacancies for positions that require varied levels of skills and training.’
‘So the Trump administration is committed to working very closely to close the skills gap.’
This Tuesday, Ivanka will be touring the Waukesha County College in Wisconsin, and afterwards, she will be leading a roundtable among CEOs of Wednesday. A ‘major policy speech’ will also be delivered by President Trump at the Department of Labor this upcoming Wednesday. The events are set to end on Thursday after another roundtable discussion between 8 governors, discussing training programs in their respective states.
