OF THE 12,073 PERSONS WHO COMPLETED MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACT INSTITUTIONAL COURSES DURING THE FIRST HALF OF 1965, INCREASED EARNINGS WERE REPORTED FOR 5,470 OF THE 8,327 FOR WHICH BOTH PRE-TRAINING AND POST-TRAINING EARNINGS DATA WERE AVAILABLE. TRAINING FOR OVER 85 PERCENT OF THE EMPLOYED GRADUATES WAS GIVEN IN THE MAJOR OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORIES--(1) SKILLED, 28 PERCENT, (2) CLERICAL AND SALES, 22 PERCENT, (3) SEMISKILLED, 18 PERCENT, AND (4) SERVICE OCCUPATIONS, 18 PERCENT. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR 72 PERCENT OF THIS GROUP WERE PROVIDED BY MANUFACTURING, SERVICE INDUSTRIES, AND WHOLESALE AND RETAIL TRADE. WORKERS TRAINED IN THE SKILLED OCCUPATIONS DOMINATED THE INTERMEDIATE AND UPPER END OF THE EARNINGS RANGE WITH 53 PERCENT EARNING AT LEAST $2.00 AN HOUR. THREE OF FIVE GRADUATES WERE MALES. ALMOST ONE QUARTER OF THE MALES REPORTING HAD PRE-TRAINING EARNINGS OF LESS THAN $1.25 PER HOUR, BUT ONLY ONE-NINTH HAD POST-TRAINING EARNINGS AT THAT LEVEL.
