The U.S. federal government spends $90 million a year on dedicated apprenticeship programs; accounting for both education and training, the German system costs $27 billion. "We're training people to have great jobs and high paying jobs, and we're here to celebrate the dignity of work", he said. "So we're empowering these companies, these unions, industry groups, federal agencies to go out and create new apprenticeships for millions of our citizens".

The president has accepted a challenge from Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff to create 5 million apprenticeships over five years. "Apprenticeships place students into great jobs without the crippling debt of four-year college degrees. Instead, apprentices earn while they learn".

Participants in some apprentice programmes receive on-the-job training while going to school, sometimes with companies footing the bill. There are retraining programs for veterans, dislocated workers, and older Americans - to name just a few. "We're concerned that the quality of apprenticeships be maintained", he says.

NPR reports that now there are more than 6 million jobs open in the US that could benefit from an apprenticeship, but only a mere 500,000 such apprenticeships now exist.

"If you're really interested in promoting apprenticeship, you have to invest in that skills training", said Mike Rosen, president of the Milwaukee chapter of the American Federation of Teachers union.

The White House officials emphasized that the president's apprenticeship program isn't a dig at university education.

Though the USA government has regulated and certified apprenticeships since 1937, former President Barack Obama's administration actively promoted the practice. The disparity in labor skills and demand has weighed heavily on American businesses, who overwhelmingly support the President's program.
