Guthrie, Davis Launch Bipartisan Apprenticeship Caucus
Washington, DC, April 11, 2018
Washington, DC– Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02) and Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53), chairman and ranking member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee’s Higher Education and Workforce Development Subcommittee, respectively, launched the bipartisan Congressional Apprenticeship Caucus. This caucus will focus on how Congress can support apprenticeships as a means to help people enter the workforce.
“As chairman of the Higher Education and Workforce Development Subcommittee, I am proud to launch this caucus with Congresswoman Davis,” said Guthrie. “Taking time away from the workforce to complete a four-year, two-year, or even six-week program simply is not an option for some workers. Apprenticeships are a great way for students and others looking for employment to get on-the-job training while they earn money. I look forward to working with Congresswoman Davis and other members who join the caucus to explore ways Congress can support this vital aspect of workforce development.”
“Having a prepared workforce with access to high quality jobs is a bipartisan issue,”said Davis. “I am proud to join my colleague, Congressman Guthrie, to establish the Congressional Apprenticeship Caucus where we will bring together industry experts and policymakers to find the most innovative solutions for students across the country.”
