What is an Apprentice?
An apprentice is a worker who learns a craft through planned, supervised work on the job in conjunction with receiving planned related technical instruction. Apprentices are taught the proper use, care and safe handling of tools and equipment used in connection with their work. Furthermore, while working on the job and acquiring an important skill, an apprentice is a regular part of the work force.
Apprentice earn regular wage increases
Apprentices earn while learning. The more they learn the higher the pay. Generally, apprentices are paid 50 percent of the journey worker's wage to start. As they increase their job skills, their wages are increased. At the successful completion of the term of apprenticeship, they become journey workers and receive full pay for their skills.
