New skills needed for manufacturing

While automation may be replacing jobs, it is also creating new jobs. However, new skills are needed for today's manufacturing workers. Saar Yoskovitz, CEO of Augury, explains.

What the U.S. can do to expand apprenticeship programs.

Job losses caused by the pandemic continue to affect millions, especially for those employed in retail and hospitality, two sectors essentially shut down during the Covid-19 crisis. One solution for getting people back into the work force is apprenticeship programs. Funding new apprenticeships provides jobs, generates long-term gains in skills, productivity, and earnings.
