Section 1 covers information from indentures imported from Europe, and early labor conditions through skill in apprenticeable trades and apprentice masterpieces. Section 2, Apprenticeship Undergoes Change, covers graduated wages for apprentices, wage rates lag, careers with apprenticeships, and apprenticeship legislation. Modern apprenticeship programs are described in the third section, including certificates of completion, joint apprenticeship committees, basic standards for apprenticeship, and apprenticeship values for youth and industry. Section 4, New Directions in Apprenticeship, includes information on women and veterans in apprenticeship, apprenticeships for the disadvantaged, apprenticeship information centers, preparatory courses, and prejob programs.
