In an effort to improve job development efforts to cope with the hard core unemployed, 73 representatives of government agencies, industry, non-profit organizations, Congress, and the Center for the Study of Unemployed Youth met for a workshop. Major panel topics were: (1) Job Development--Where Are We Now? (2) Job Development and the Civil Service, (3) Community Experience in Job Development Programs, and (4) New Dimensions to Job Development. Some presentations were: (1) "Job Development for Disadvantaged Youth, Basic Issues," by F. Cassell, (2) "Job Development and the Labor Market," by R. A. Nixon, (3) "Federal Civil Service and Job Development," by S. Leff, (4) "Job Development in St. Louis," by C. Gatlin, (5) "Industry Approaches to Job Development," by W.

Levitan, and (9) "After Watts," by M. Dymally. A majority of the participants favored removal of artificial barriers to employment and large-scale subsidies to employers to spur the hiring of disadvantaged clients as solutions to employment problems.
