Missing from Trump's grand Navy plan: skilled workers to build the fleet

Rate this topic

1 post in this topic

U.S. President Donald Trump says he wants to build dozens of new warships in one of the biggest peace-time expansions of the U.S. Navy. But interviews with ship-builders, unions and a review of public and internal documents show major obstacles to that plan.

The initiative could cost nearly $700 billion in government funding, take 30 years to complete and require hiring tens of thousands of skilled shipyard workers - many of whom don't exist yet because they still need to be hired and trained, according to the interviews and the documents reviewed. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-shipbuilding-insight-idUSKBN16O142
