The Trade Act of 1974 provides special assistance for workers who lose their jobs or whose hours of work and wages are reduced as a result of increased imports from, or shifts in production to, foreign countries. The goal of The Trade Act Programs is to help trade-affected workers return to suitable employment as quickly as possible. Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) includes a variety of benefits and services to help trade-affected workers prepare for and obtain suitable employment as quickly as possible. It pays for expenses of job training, education, seeking work and relocating to accept new work. Workers may also receive extra weekly unemployment payments known as Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA) after regular state unemployment insurance benefits have been paid.

Apprenticeship is a training strategy that combines supervised, structured on-the-job training with related instruction and is sponsored by employers, employer associations or labor/management groups that have the ability to hire and train in a working environment. The employment opportunity is the most basic requirement for an apprenticeship. Without a job there is no "on-the-job" training", and such training represents about 90% of the program.
The Department of Workforce Development has the primary responsibility for monitoring apprenticeship programs in Wisconsin. Through a cooperative agreement between the federal government and the state, the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training of the U.S. Department of Labor has two field staff in Wisconsin who work with state staff to ensure the smooth functioning of the system.
A fundamental part of the Wisconsin Apprenticeship System is the Agreement (contract) between the employer and the apprentice that must be approved by the Bureau of Apprenticeship Standards (BAS). Such approval establishes the State's responsibility to oversee the contract to ascertain that all of the provisions are lived up to by the parties involved.
In order for such a program to work effectively for the many types of skilled trades and crafts, the system incorporates the cooperation of management organizations, labor organizations, the Wisconsin Technical College System and many other groups and agencies.
The involvement of the skilled journeyman in the training of apprentices is vital. They also play an important role helping employers administer sound programs and by serving on apprenticeship committees advising both the Bureau and Wisconsin Technical College System.
