In a White House event with business and organizational leaders, President Trump signed an executive order creating the National Council for the American Worker, to convene experts from government, education, and private industry to focus on workforce development and training.  The Council, led by Ivanka Trump, will focus on increasing job training and apprenticeships for American workers.

Companies such as Walmart, FedEx, Lockheed Martin, and Microsoft were among the those that signed a “Pledge to American Workers,” committing to create job opportunities over the next five years. Walmart alone committed to creating one million new jobs in that time period.  Business organizations present such as the Internet Association and Associated Builders & Contractors signed pledges to develop apprenticeships to help re-skill workers.
