These young men are preparing for important careers with General Motors.
Under the GM apprentice plan, they are learning the diemaker's skills. Once
they have mastered this craft-and it will take them four years (8,000 hours)
of on-the-job training and classroom study-each will be a skilled journeyman,
qualified to make the complex dies, jigs and fixtures so vital to modern
industry.
This year, 2,753 General Motors apprentices are being trained for this and
other trades-more than 30 in all. They are learning to be pattern makers,
pipefitters, bricklayers, toolmakers, diesinkers, electricians and millwrights,
to name a few. From the time they start training they are paid good wages
on
a regular rising scale.
At the conclusion of their four-year courses, apprentices will have gained
skills
that will serve them well throughout their working careers. They are free,
of
course, to work anywhere they wish-but most stay with GM. We're glad of
that. We need them. Talented people are indispensable to General Motors.
