Reinvigorating manufacturing in the United States is a key component of the Trump administration's economic agenda. President Trump recently presented his ambitious plan to reach 5 million apprenticeships in the United States over the next five years. European, and in particular German, apprenticeship and workforce development systems offer many valuable lessons US companies. Better workforce training can reduce shortages of skilled workers, boost manufacturing companies’ competitiveness, and revitalize regions that are grappling with the challenges of globalization.
