New Careers, A Basic Strategy Against Poverty.
The New Careers concept involves helping the disadvantaged to help themselves by offering them entry level jobs with the opportunity for training and advancement. New Careers provides the means to upgrade from entry level to professional occupations, with time made available during the work day for the education and training necessary for advancement. A definite hierarchy is established, with specific tasks and educational requirements defined for each level, so that no job is a dead-end job. This program not only provides new jobs protected against automation, but it helps the professions involved as well, by relieving critical manpower shortages and freeing professionals for more creative work.
