U.S. Home Builders Applaud President Trump's Commitment to Workforce Development

Marking the one-year anniversary of the White House executive order on workforce development this week, Greg Ugalde, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders issued the following statement:

"The NAHB applauds President Trump for his tireless commitment to expand job-training and apprenticeship opportunities for students and mid-career workers alike so that they will develop the skills and tools needed to secure well-paying jobs and succeed in the American workforce.

"As a representative of an industry that is vital to the U.S. economy, it is my honor to attend this White House event marking the first anniversary of the president's executive order that established the National Council for the American Worker.

"With the housing sector grappling with severe labor shortages, NAHB is pleased to do its part to help in this vital initiative by pledging to train 50,000 new workers over a five-year period for a career in the residential construction trades. Our commitment to workforce training starts with the Home Builders Institute, a member of the NAHB federation, and a national leader in workforce training for the construction industry.

"NAHB shares the president's dedication to training a workforce that meets our needs at home and makes America more competitive abroad and we are proud to participate in this worthy endeavor."
