WASHINGTON, DC-President Donald J. Trump touted a surging economy for the rapid growth in trade based jobs across the country.
“There’s never been a better time to learn a trade, hone your skill and fulfill your dream,” Trump said.
On Tuesday, he signed executive order H.R. 2353, “”Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act,” which reauthorizes and modifies existing programs for career and technical education.”
According to CNBC, “The employment cost index increased 0.6 percent for civilian workers in the three-month period ending in June, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics release Tuesday. That brought the 12-month rate up to 2.8 percent, the highest level since 2.9 percent in the third quarter of 2008, amid the financial crisis and the Great Recession.”
President Trump: “Whether you are a high school student or a late career worker, there has never been a better time to learn a trade, hone a skill, or pursue your dreams.”
