Abstract :

The Clinton administration should promote a job training program based on apprenticeship and productivity-enhancing activities to educate the country's labor force and prevent the rise of new inequalities in the workplace. It should adopt a a more meaningful program that will result in long-term gains rather than invest on a learning plan based on continuous progression through schooling, training and work. In addition, the government must refrain from comparing the US labor market with that of Germany since the latter has a different set of social policies that govern its labor force.
