We need work programs and apprenticeships for everyday people that are run but not managed by venture capitalists. Decouple the market from the marketplace, already! Sen Bernie Sanders has suggested a liberal approach to alleviate the saturation of the U.S. market by young people with college degrees. The reason apprenticeships of the dot-com variety are working OK instead of working really well for both tech & vocational skills training is because corporations not co-ops run them. If both the stakeholding and shareholding is dominated by corporate fiduciary duty then the already entrenched system of people with college degrees only exists to make a profit. Monetary gain and capitalist-centered administration doesn’t continuously enrich and enable lives, having sustainability while building community coalitions does.
If students want real apprenticeships in tech & vocational fields for free then they really need to get behind Pres Obama and support laissez-faire capitalism under which a demander or consumer always gets a stake in his/her endeavors; diligently undertaken by such a graduate, and not “just get a job” in his/her field. Form your own company. Volunteer. This conundrum all poor American workers now face is the reason some countries have socialism. Elevate collective bargaining!! Fight the power!!
