Youth without Work: Three Countries Approach the Problem.
Williams, Shirley; And Others
Results of examinations of youth employment policies are presented for three countries--Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the United States. Part 1 is a report by Shirley Williams with conclusions on the broad social and economic issues as they relate to problems of youth employment and unemployment. Parts 2 through 4 are the three country reviews of the report. The review of Danish policies considers the country's integrated approach with educational provision for young people in the last years of school and beyond the statutory period and manpower programs provided under the Special Employment Plan Number 2. The report on German policies focuses on dealing with youth unemployment not through job creation measures but by reduction of the number entering the labor force directly from school through a well-established system of vocational education and training that has been expanded to absorb more adolescents. The review of United States policies concentrates on programs provided under the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act and the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act. Part 5 is a brief resume of the proceedings of the December 1980 meeting of the High Level Conference on Youth Employment of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. (YLB)
