A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF A SAMPLE OF TRAINEES FROM THE MAYOR'S YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROJECT.
KOBERNICK, ALLAN; STAVROS, DENNY
THE SAMPLE WAS COMPOSED OF 22 NEGRO MALES AND 28 NEGRO FEMALES EMPLOYED AT THE TIME OF INTERVIEW, AND 17 NEGRO FEMALES, RECENTLY EMPLOYED BUT UNEMPLOYED WHEN INTERVIEWED. A PERSONAL INTERVIEW WAS CONDUCTED WITH THE TRAINEES SELECTED, AND A MAIL-OUT INTERVIEW WAS USED IN COLLECTING DATA FROM EMPLOYERS. THE DIFFERENCES IN THE OCCUPATIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE SUBJECTS WERE COMPARED WITH 1960 CENSUS FIGURES FOR THE TOTAL POPULATION AND TOTAL NONWHITE POPULATION IN THE DETROIT METROPOLITAN AREA. ALSO STUDIED WERE THE ASPECTS OF THE JOBS, JOB CHARACTERIZATION, EMPLOYEE SATISFACTION, JOB EXPECTATIONS FOR AGE 25, EMPLOYER EVALUATIONS, DESIRABLE AND UNDESIRABLE JOB CHARACTERISTICS, PROJECTED JOB CONTINUITY, JOB SEEKING OF UNEMPLOYED FEMALES, AND EVALUATIONS BY SUBJECTS OF THE MAYOR'S YOUTH EMPLOYMENT PROJECT. SOME OF THE FINDINGS WERE--(1) THE JOBS HELD BY THE FEMALES WERE MORE OFTEN IN THE AREA IN WHICH THEY WERE PRESUMABLY TRAINED, (2) THE JOBS HELD BY THE MALES WERE MORE OFTEN NOT IN THE AREA IN WHICH THEY WERE PRESUMABLY TRAINED, (3) OVER HALF OF THE FEMALES WERE TRAINED AS CLERKS, AND CLOSE TO HALF OF THE MALES WERE TRAINED AS SERVICE WORKERS, AND (4) THREE OUT OF FIVE FEMALES AND FOUR OUT OF FIVE MALES IDENTIFIED THE PROJECT AS A SOURCE OF ASSISTANCE IN OBTAINING THEIR JOBS. CRITICISMS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING THE PROGRAM ARE GIVEN. (PS)
