NJ Spotlight reports:

A report released last week by the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice spotlights a number of programs that have been created in other states to foster apprenticeships that often lead to lifetime careers offering good pay and full benefits.

The group’s report also suggests a number of ways New Jersey policymakers could do more to establish more robust apprenticeship programs, including creating new programs within schools to encourage students to get into careers based on a specific skill or trade and offering new tax credits to companies for hiring apprentices to work alongside their skilled employees.
