An Experimental and Demonstrational Program to Improve the Status of Household Employment. Final Report (March 15, 1968-July 31, 1970).
Blackoff, Edward M.
To demonstrate the feasibility of utilizing a commercial household service business to correct inequities connected with the household occupations, nearly 400 underemployed or unemployed persons were enrolled in a training and work experience program with a guarantee of employment for graduates. The project found that the exploitation of household workers was deeply rooted in the attitudes and practices of the employers, who strongly resisted paying adequate charges, despite the promise of professional services and guaranteed satisfaction. The project points out the need for protective legislation. (BH)
