October 2017 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
November 17, 2017
"As National Apprenticeship Week comes to a close, it is important to recognize the significance registered apprenticeships have played throughout American history up to and including the present day.  Registered Apprenticeships have lead millions into gainful employment and economic independence.  The skills learned during apprenticeship training are in demand by employers across Vermont.  If you or someone you know may be interested in training for a profession leading to guaranteed employment --- all the while getting paid to do so, please contact the Vermont Department of Labor's Registered Apprenticeship program."

Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
