THE ANNUAL WORKER PLAN IN 1966.
TO DECREASE THE TIME LOST BY MIGRATORY WORKERS BETWEEN JOBS AND TO PROVIDE EMPLOYERS WITH A DEPENDABLE LABOR SOURCE, THE ANNUAL WORKER PLAN HAS PLANNED COMPREHENSIVE ITINERARIES FOR MIGRANTS SINCE 1954. THREE METHODS ARE USED TO RECRUIT MIGRANT FARM WORKERS UNDER THIS PLAN -- (1) STATE AGENCIES ARRANGE AND CONDUCT INTERVIEWS WITH CREW LEADERS AND MATCH COLLECTED INFORMATION WITH THAT PROVIDED BY EMPLOYMENT SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES FROM DEMAND STATES, (2) RECRUITMENT IS CONDUCTED BY REPRESENTATIVES OF EACH DEMAND STATE INDEPENDENTLY OF OTHER DEMAND STATES, AND (3) RECRUITMENT IS PERFORMED BY EMPLOYMENT SERVICE PERSONNEL IN THE MIGRANT'S HOME STATE TO FILL ORDERS FROM DEMAND STATES. IN 1966, STATE EMPLOYMENT SECURITY AGENCIES CONTACTED ABOUT 12,600 MIGRANT-FARMWORKER GROUPS REPRESENTING 193,700 INDIVIDUALS RESIDING IN 34 STATES. OF THE GROUPS CONTACTED, 58 PERCENT WERE FAMILIES, 25 PERCENT WERE CREWS, AND 17 PERCENT WERE OTHER TYPES OF GROUPS. NEARLY ONE-HALF OF THE 193,700 INDIVIDUALS WERE ADULT MALES, ONE-FOURTH WERE ADULT FEMALES, AND ONE-FOURTH WERE CHILDREN UNDER 16. OVER THREE-FOURTHS OF THE PERSONS COVERED BY THE PLAN IN 1966 CLAIMED TEXAS OR FLORIDA AS THEIR HOME STATE. A TABLE SHOWING CHARACTERISTICS OF MIGRANT WORKERS BY STATE OF RESIDENCE, 1966, IS INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARED IN "FARM LABOR DEVELOPMENTS," APRIL 1967. (WB)
