Manpower Needs in Alaska State and Local Government.
Kleinfeld, Judith; Morehouse, Thomas A.
This study explores two central problems confronting state and local government in Alaska: the accelerating needs for professional manpower in the public service and the increasing severity of unemployment among the native population. Although the causes are not the same, there may be a common solution. Better recruiting and selection criteria, combined with a restructuring of jobs to increase the ratio of subprofessionals to professionals, could reduce personnel shortages and provide jobs with on-the-job training for some of the 60-70 percent of Alaskan natives who are unemployed.
