NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN MANPOWER PROGRAMS.
Department of Labor, Washington, DC.
THE THREE MAJOR FOCUSES OF MANPOWER POLICY AND PROGRAMS IN 1967 WERE ON THE CONCENTRATION AND UNIFICATION OF MANPOWER FORCES TO HELP THE NATION'S MOST DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE ACHIEVE EMPLOYABILITY AND DECENTLY PAID JOBS, ON GREATLY INCREASED EFFORTS TO INVOLVE PRIVATE INDUSTRY IN THE TRAINING AND JOB ADJUSTMENT OF THE HARD-CORE UNEMPLOYED, AND ON NEW PROGRAM DEVELOPMENTS AIMED AT GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN MEETING THE DIVERGENT NEEDS OF DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS. SOME OF THE MEASURES AIMED AT SPEEDING PROGRESS IN THESE DIRECTIONS WERE (1) EXPANDING THE CONCENTRATED EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM, DESIGNED TO COORDINATE THE ATTACK ON HARD-CORE UNEMPLOYMENT, (2) STRENGTHENING AND STREAMLINING THE MANPOWER ADMINISTRATION, THE INSTRUMENT WITHIN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH MANAGES ALMOST 80 PERCENT OF OUR MANPOWER PROGRAMS, (3) ESTABLISHING THE COOPERATIVE AREA MANPOWER PLANNING SYSTEM, BEGUN IN 1967, ON A LONG-TERM BASIS, (4) ESTABLISHING THE JOB OPPORTUNITIES IN BUSINESS SECTOR (JOBS) PROGRAM, A NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE INDUSTRY TO TRAIN AND HIRE THE HARD-CORE UNEMPLOYED, AND (5) ESTABLISHING THE WORK INCENTIVE PROGRAM (WIN) OF WORK AND TRAINING FOR EMPLOYABLE PEOPLE ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. DESCRIPTIONS OF OTHER PROGRAMS AND DISCUSSIONS OF WAYS OF MEETING THE NEEDS OF SPECIFIC CLIENT GROUPS ARE INCLUDED. A BUDGETARY INCREASE OF 25 PERCENT WAS RECOMMENDED FOR 1969 MANPOWER PROGRAMS. THIS CHAPTER APPEARS IN "MANPOWER REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT AND REPORT ON MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS, RESOURCES, UTILIZATION, AND TRAINING" (1968) AVAILABLE AS VT 001 025. (ET)
