National Apprenticeship Week, 2019

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our Nation's robust economy continues to flourish, 
                creating new opportunities for Americans and securing 
                our continued dominance of global markets. As 
                President, I have reduced tax burdens and eliminated 
                unnecessary regulations, producing the lowest 
                unemployment rate in 50 years and more job openings 
                than there are job seekers for 19 months in a row. My 
                Administration is committed to helping all Americans 
                take advantage of this historically strong job market 
                and secure lasting prosperity by ensuring they have 
                access to skills-training that will enable them to 
                launch successful careers in any industry. As we 
                observe National Apprenticeship Week, we celebrate the 
                growing optimism of workers across our country and 
                strengthen our resolve to continue empowering our 
                workers to achieve the American Dream.

                Encouraging the creation and expansion of 
                apprenticeships is a cornerstone of my commitment to 
                helping improve employment prospects for students and 
                workers. My Administration continues to make 
                unprecedented investments to ensure apprenticeships

                than $300 million to that mission this year alone. We 
                awarded nearly $184 million to the Scaling

                Through workplace and classroom education, apprentices 
                gain valuable knowledge and credentials, drastically 
                improving their future career trajectory.

                This week, we recommit our efforts to fostering greater 
                opportunity for current and future workers by 
                supporting expanded access to apprenticeships. By 
                increasing training and educational programs, we will

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 11 through
