TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE AND JOB CHANGE. PAPER PRESENTED AT THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AUTOMATION, FULL EMPLOYMENT, AND A BALANCED ECONOMY (ROME, ITALY, JUNE 27, 1967).
HABER, WILLIAM
THIS PAPER SKETCHES RECENT TRENDS AND PROBLEMS THAT HAVE EMERGED IN PUBLIC TRAINING EFFORTS IN THE UNITED STATES DURING THE 1960S. IT CITES SHIFTS IN EMPHASIS FROM TRAINING WORKERS FOR EXISTING JOBS TO REFOCUSING ON YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT AND TO PREPARING THE HARD-CORE UNEMPLOYED FOR WORK, AND FROM CONCERN WITH JOB TRAINING TO JOB CREATION. IT POINTS OUT SUCH TRENDS AS REHABILITATING DISADVANTAGED WORKERS IN INNER-CITY AREAS, EXPANSION OF ON-THE-JOB TRAINING PROGRAMS, ACTIVE ENCOURAGEMENT OF BUSINESS INVOLVEMENT IN PUBLIC TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND REORIENTATION TOWARD CLIENT-CENTERED SERVICES INVOLVING SUCH NEW CONCEPTS AS OUTREACH, JOB DEVELOPMENT, AND INTERAGENCY PROGRAMING. AMONG THE PROBLEMS OUTLINED ARE THE UNRESPONSIVENESS OF COMMUNITY INSTITUTIONS AND THE "CRASH" NATURE OF PROGRAMS DUE TO FUNDING PRACTICES. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT SOME SET FORMULA FOR COOPERATION AMONG AGENCIES BE MADE THROUGH A CENTRAL FEDERAL OR STATE AUTHORITY. A BIBLIOGRAPHY CONTAINS 15 ITEMS. (RT)
