I like the idea. It’s creative. And as the article says they hear from manufacturers about a lack of trained workers. I have difficulty finding both trained and untrained workers for my rural manufacturing operation. The idea of apprenticeships and putting students to work and lowering their debt is a great idea for government assistance. See the article here.
We have to do what we can to stop the “ brain drain” from rural Minnesota. The right training programs and conduit agencies connecting businesses with colleges will help.
I like these micro ideas instead of the grand scale subsidies for large corporations that we lobby against. To me micro concepts like apprenticeships are the best value and investment for the taxpayers with the broadest and most positive economic impact.
