whiteHouse, cabinet, 2018:
We’ve launched a bold workforce training initiative.
So far, over 100 companies and associations
have already pledged to train and retrain
over 4 million Americans.
Training the people is so important,
because we have companies,
once again, coming back into our country,
and they want to employ people.
We’re training and working with “these” people,
and we’re getting companies to do the same.
It’s been — actually,
it’s been a very “beautiful thing”.
We fought very hard to include “Opportunity Zones”
in our tax bill,
which, as you know, we have.
This tax incentive will bring badly needed investment
into distressed communities —
communities with high unemployment,
communities where it’s really tough,
and tough to get a job.
