Reclaiming the Hard Core Unemployed through Training.
Schenkel, K. F.; Hudson, R. H.
This report describes a metalworker's training program conducted by the Lockheed-Georgia Company and funded by the Manpower Development Training Act (MDTA). The trainees ranged from ages 18 to 21, and were mainly comprised of school dropouts and minority group members (84 percent Negroes) with police records. Tests used to screen candidates are discussed along with a specific account of the training offered. A special counselor worked with each trainee three times a week for the purpose of encouraging acceptable behavior in a working situation. (KG)
