Trump wants federal hiring to focus on skills over degrees

I think it's safe to assume that this is bluster, and that there's a con behind this somewhere, especially if Ivanka thinks this is the greatest thing since champagne popsicles.

is a champion for America’s workers.

Today he’ll sign an EO directing the USG to hire on the basis of skills + knowledge rather than simply degree requirements.

President Trump built the most inclusive economy once and will do it again.



Trump wants federal hiring to focus on skills over degrees

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is preparing to direct the federal government to overhaul its hiring to prioritize a job applicant’s skills over a college degree, administration and industry officials say.

Trump is set to sign an executive order Friday outlining a new direction for the nation’s largest employer during a meeting of the board that advises the administration on worker policy.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and adviser, is co-chair of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board and has worked on improving job training to meet employers’ changing needs.

2. The typical Trump follower's alma mater is the School of Hard Knocks.

Like the now defunct Trump University, Hard Knocks U. doesn't have a real campus, sports teams or any actual students. HKU provides no useful education, other than the millions of painful hard knocks that have made the average Trump follower so angry, resentful and full of hate.

3. Then he should explain Ivanka and Jared...

They are as useful as a screen door on a submarine and neither one is particularly decorated with degrees either...

Just you usual nepotism and hypocrisy...

4. Just an attempt to mask his nepotism and cronyism. Total Bullshit.

Most Federal jobs have degree requirements for a reason. Some require licensure.

Aside from literally anyone else, who better to make a video touting skills-based hiring in the federal government?
