Lack of city tech apprenticeships hurts New Yorkers: report

“As Amazon, Facebook and Google lead a tech boom in the city, a new report points to apprenticeships—long a recruiting tool of the building trades—as a way to allow more New Yorkers to benefit from digital jobs while ensuring the city has the talent employers need. The problem, according to the Center for an Urban Future report, is there are just not enough options available for would-be apprentices. There were fewer than 15 apprentice programs active in the city this year, serving just a few dozen New Yorkers.”
