A STUDY OF HEALTH AND RELATED SERVICE OCCUPATIONS IN WISCONSIN.
Wisconsin State Employment Service, Madison.
THE SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE REQUEST OF REPRESENTATIVES OF VARIOUS HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS TO DETERMINE THE PRESENT AND FUTURE EMPLOYMENT NEEDS IN 10 OCCUPATIONS IN WHICH THERE MIGHT BE A SHORTAGE OF MANPOWER AND IN WHICH PERSONS COULD BE TRAINED UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THE AREA REDEVELOPMENT AND MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING ACTS. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS MAILED TO 519 NURSING HOMES, 265 HOSPITALS, AND 44 COUNTY HOMES. OF THAT TOTAL, 43 PERCENT RESPONDED. OCCUPATIONS SURVEYED WERE ASSISTANT LABORATORY TECHNICIAN, COOK, FOOD SERVICE WORKER, HOUSEKEEPING AIDE, WARD MAID, MEDICAL ASSISTANT, NURSING ASSISTANT, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANT, OPERATING ROOM ASSISTANT, AND WARD CLERK. THERE WERE 14,227 PERSONS EMPLOYED, AND THERE WILL BE A NEED FOR 1,860 NEW WORKERS BY THE END OF 1965. THE GREATEST NEED WILL BE FOR 1,118 NURSING ASSISTANTS, 184 WARD MAIDS, AND 177 FOOD SERVICE WORKERS. (PA)
