Each year, thousands of students enter college to begin work on their four year Bachelor’s degrees. Each year, ABC starts new apprentices, each of which will begin work on their three or four year Apprenticeship degree. During the four years a college student attends school they will pay approximately $70,000 to get their degree.
During this same three or four year period each Apprentice will pay $0 dollars for their funded education and EARN in excess of $95,000 working in their chosen trade.
At the end of four years of college, IF they are lucky enough to find a job in their field, a college student can expect to earn $30,000 to $50,000.
When the ABC Apprentices graduate and become journey workers THEY ALREADY HAVE A JOB, Health Insurance and a FREE FOUR YEAR DEGREE and will be earning between $70,000 to $100,000.
YOU SHOULD CONSIDER ALL YOUR OPTIONS WHEN CHOOSING A CAREER
ABC works through its Legislative Committee in the identification of issues and the establishment of policy on subjects that will affect our members. This committee is utilized to review legislation and meets to evaluate legislative initiatives to be considered by the Colorado General Assembly during its four-month session, take positions on these proposals, and communicates the position of the industry to the appropriate legislators or regulatory agencies.
The members of ABC are kept informed through a variety of publications and alerts. Legislative Action Alerts are sent to members on critical issues requesting action in a short period of time. In addition, legislative updates are printed monthly in the chapter’s newsletter, the Merit Builder, highlighting legislative issues. The legislative update is broad based and covers not only legislative proposals, but also regulatory and administrative actions, which impact the industry.
