Training Workers for the New Economy

Better Way to Help U.S. Victims of Free Trade (Ronald J. Daniels & Michael Trebilcock) from Bloomberg View
"The most successful programs, such as in Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, tend to have a number of similar traits: They aggressively press workers into training programs, in some circumstances making it mandatory in order to receive other benefits. They engineer flexible opportunities with industry for workers including apprenticeships and short-term training opportunities. And they subsidize part-time opportunities for workers, to keep them in the workforce and their skills sharp while they look for new opportunities."
