The Model Neighborhood Jobseeker. A Survey of Hawaii State Employment Service Job Applicants from Kalihi-Palama and Waianae Coast.
This study of job-seekers from the model neighborhoods of Kalihi-Palama and the Waianae Coast consists of a stock analysis of individuals from these areas who were active applicants of the Oahu Employment Service Division Placement Branches and Employment Opportunity Center. Unemployment is estimated at between 597 and 1,600 in Kalihi-Palama and between 382 and 750 in Waianae Coast. Model neighborhood residents seeking full-time, permanent employment make up 12.6 percent of the total Oahu inventory of the state employment service offices. The unusual nature of the model neighborhoods was apparent in that over 80 percent of the job-seekers were defined as disadvantaged in their job hunt and over two-thirds of the disadvantaged had more than one problem. About 43 percent were not fully qualified for their area of search. Recommendations include: (1) future study of the effects of local intake centers, both in improved assistance to registrants and more comprehensive identification of job seekers, and (2) a followup study which would look at successful job-seekers.
