By way of background, in June, the Administration issued an executive order that would remove federal restrictions on and expand access to apprenticeships across all industries. Part of this order included the formation of an advisory task force to lay out a strategy to promote apprenticeships, to be led by the Department of Labor (DOL) and including up to 20 individuals from various industries. The Secretary of Labor will serve as chair, with the Secretaries of Education and Commerce to serve as Vice Chairs. The full executive order can be read here.
