It Pays To Be An Apprentice: 63% More
Updated: Jun 5
An apprenticeship program that matches employers with community colleges has launched graduates into middle class careers and could be a way to address the flagging fortunes of Americans lacking four-year degrees, according to a study published Monday.
The Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education targets the widespread need for "middle-skill workers" who are capable of operating advanced manufacturing technology. Students in the program combine two days a week of community college study with three days a week of hands-on training on the factory floor while receiving part-time wages.
