Apprenticeship Trivia

Efforts in the U.S. to create a uniform national apprenticeship system began in the 1920s during the boom days following WWI. At that time, immigration was heavily restricted, so fewer skilled workers came to the U.S. from other countries at a time when industry, especially the construction trades, needed more skilled labor than was available. These efforts would not come to fruition until 1934, in large part due to the crash of 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression.
