Biden Terminates Employer-Led Apprenticeships

WASHINGTON, D.C., September 23, 2022
Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement slamming the Biden administration’s new rule terminating employer-led apprenticeships:

“The Biden administration is relentless. Instead of promoting employer-led apprenticeship programs—which allow job creators to provide workers with the tools for success—the Department of Labor is giving them the axe. Job creators are on the front lines of their respective industries every day, and understand the exact skills workers need to be successful. It is sheer lunacy to think that Washington bureaucrats, who have never worked in the industries they hope to regulate, would know better.

“Ultimately, this new rule is another attempt by the Biden administration to bulldoze its way into the American workforce and expand federal control. Workers, job creators, and our economy do not need this new rule or more top-down control. The only people who benefit work in Biden’s swamp.”
