Please join me in cosponsoring the Promoting Apprentices in Public Service Act. As you know, there are currently 585,000 apprentices developing the critical skills necessary to compete in a 21st Century economy. Apprentices that successfully complete an
apprenticeship program earn a higher median annual wage than the median for all workers. In order to build upon the success that these apprenticeship programs produce, the federal government must capitalize on apprentices’ experience and provide resources
to compel more men and women to enter into these programs.
