Yesterday, Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump traveled to Duluth, Georgia, visiting the UPS Integrad facility near Atlanta alongside Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA). This state-of-the-art training center gives UPS drivers the chance to learn valuable skills crucial for success in the rapidly changing global economy.
Her visit marked an opportunity to discuss UPS’ workforce development programs, which parallel the Trump Administration’s recent push to get more American jobs filled by American workers. With nine UPS Integrad facilities in United States, the result has been lower turnover and fewer accidents among the company’s new drivers.
“This is something that the Administration is deeply passionate about—ensuring that all Americans have the opportunity to benefit from the booming economy that we are experiencing,” Ms. Trump said at a roundtable with UPS employees.
Last July, President Donald J. Trump encouraged top executives across the country to sign his Pledge to America’s Workers, intended to give employees and students alike the chance to secure better, more stable jobs. UPS was on board from the start, committing to offer 51,750 career opportunities through skills training and apprenticeship programs.
With Ivanka Trump leading the charge, the Pledge to America’s Workers has grown to more than 6.5 million opportunities pledged for our workforce since last July. That number climbs each day, with partners that include Walmart, Apple, FedEx, and large and small businesses from coast to coast.
