Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2015 -- Last month the White House joined labor leaders and government officials to celebrate the first annual "National Apprenticeship Week." According to industrial journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, this nationwide emphasis on apprenticeships arrives at an important time. College debt is off the charts, and the median income gap between minorities and whites has improved very little in the past quarter century.
Cutler will be profiling some of the organizations working to coordinate more than $1 billion in private investment per year to fund 1,600 apprenticeship training centers nationwide. With a focus on enlisting women, minorities, and military veterans, these centers offer a debt-free path to the middle class without costing taxpayers a dime.
