Training the Hardcore.
Urban Research Corp., Chicago, IL.
This part of the series on Training the Hardcore covers factors involved in hiring and training the hardcore, abstracts of the 12 volumes included in the whole, and three other documents which will give management further insight into how the employment situation looks to the man in the street. Based on his experience at KLH and Polaroid, Henry M. Morgan comments on finding trainees, screening, pre-job training, job entry, upgrading, job expansion, and putting hardcore programs in the perspective of the entire economic picture. He examines geography, transportation, and jobs; black entrepreneurship, participation, and self-determination; preventing hardcore unemployment; and planning for future employment programs. Twenty-four pages are devoted to describing the contents of each of the 12 volumes. The follows a radio script of "The World Across the Street," built around interviews with two groups of boys (one white, one black) in the same public housing project in Boston, Massachusetts. In "No Gimmicks, Please, Whitey," Kenneth B. Clark writes of difficulties companies should anticipate and understand in hardcore programs. From Elliot Liebow's book, "Tally's Corner," the chapter on "Men and Jobs" takes one on a tour around one block in the ghetto. (pt)
