President Donald Trump signed an executive order that will cut back the federal government’s role in creating and monitoring apprenticeship programs. Another anti-regulatory victory for business interests. It will move the role of developing government-funded apprenticeship programs from the Labor Department to third-party private entities — including trade groups, labor unions and businesses. The third parties will set their own bar for success and submit their metrics to the Labor Department for approval. The order will also double the amount of money for apprenticeship grants, from $90 million to nearly $200 million a year.
