Finally, President Trump spoke at a campaign fundraiser for Governor Walker at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, which cost $1,000 to attend.

"I want to challenge the assumption that the only way to move policy is to increase government spending", Acosta said at the Monday White House news briefing.

Trump will travel to Wisconsin on Tuesday to visit a training program at Waukesha County Technical College with Republican Governor Scott Walker, a former rival in the race to become the 2016 Republican presidential candidate. He said a replacement will be "generous, kind" and show "heart" and promised more funding. Just 35 percent of Americans approved of the job he's doing as president, the poll found. Sixty-four percent-and one-quarter of Republicans-disapproved of Trump's job performance.

Apprenticeships and job training, by contrast, generate nearly no partisan bickering, and mainstream economists generally approve.

"It's called earn while you learn", he said of his initiative, at Waukesha County Technical College. Now there are 11,000 adults and 3,500 high school students in apprenticeship programs overseen by the state.

He spent the tour with his daughter, Ivanka Trump, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Walker. The order creates a task force to recommend ways to promote apprenticeships and require all federal agencies to evaluate their training programs - one official said that was "43 separate work force programs that are spread across 13 agencies that total $16.7 billion a year" - and consider how to consolidate the programs.

With technology rapidly remaking the nature of work, it's more important than ever for workers to remain relevant (and probably harder, too). He said there are 360,000 job vacancies in manufacturing and 200,000 in construction.

The NRA says the US foodservice industry employs more than 14.7 million people.

This is an idea that can help Americans find a job in today's stalled labor market. In May, the US created 138,000 nonfarm payrolls, lower than an expected 185,000, while the unemployment rate dipped to 4.3 percent. And we have one of the highest percentages of people working - Mr. Secretary, you'll appreciate that - we have nearly 69 percent labor force participation rate. By helping kids to acquire the tools needed to fill up the large number of jobs that tend to be filled with foreign workers, our nation can avoid importing labor that should be trained domestically.
