Orrin Hatch
US Senate
There are nearly one million open tech jobs in the US today. This gap will increase significantly in the coming years, as older workers retire and the expansion of cloud, cybersecurity, and big data devices require more people to create, manage and monitor technology. Sen. Orrin Hatch introduced the EARNS Act to expand apprenticeship in the U.S. Apprenticeship pairs on-the-job training with classroom instruction, and it’s one of the best ways to prepare workers to participate in the workforce, and to train loyal, skilled employees so businesses compete in today’s economy. This sentence will discuss apprenticeship programs and other creative ways employers are looking to fill open positions.

Orrin Hatch
U.S. Senator
US Senate

Orrin Grant Hatch was born on March 22, 1934, to Jesse and Helen Hatch. He married Elaine Hansen of Newton, Utah in 1957. Orrin and Elaine Hatch are the proud parents of six children, 23 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Now in his seventh term as Utah's senator, Orrin Hatch is the most senior Republican in the Senate. Among his many initiatives are the Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, the Strengthening Our Commitment to Legal Immigration and America’s Security Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, and the Utah School Trust Lands Exchange Act. Senator Hatch continues to lead in the fight to repeal Obamacare. He is on the front lines of legislative battles to secure the nation’s borders, stop the forced unionization of American workers, and to bring fiscal restraint back to Washington by ending the reckless spending that threatens to bankrupt the nation.
