Virginia State College at Norfolk is giving special attention to under-utilization of the labor force. Atlanta University is investigating counseling and employment experiences of high school students. North Carolina State University investigations include the lifetime allocation of leisure, income, and work, teenage choices between labor force and school participation, and the job market for college teachers. Temple University is investigating labor force non-participation of men in urban slum areas and job opportunities in-migrants, and local manpower programs in Philadelphia.
