National Commission for Employment Policy Sixth Annual Report to the President and the Congress. Including Findings and Recommendations on Economic Development and Jobs for the Structurally Unemployed. Report No. 10.
National Commission for Employment Policy (DOL), Washington, DC.
According to this annual report, the National Commission for Employment Policy concentrated on two primary areas during 1980. Much of its efforts were directed to exploring how the coordination between federally funded economic development programs and employment and training programs could be improved in order to expand employment opportunities for the structurally unemployed in distressed urban and rural locations. The other primary thrust of the commission's work during the year was to assess how federally funded employment and training programs, in particular Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) programs and vocational education, could better serve the needs of disadvantaged White, Black, and Hispanic women--a high proportion of whom are trapped on welfare or have access only to the low-paying jobs traditionally held by women. Seven recommendations were generated concerning the increase of job opportunities for the structurally unemployed through cooperation with economic development programs and changing regulations to permit such cooperation. Also included in the annual report are a chapter on the relation of monetary and fiscal policies to employment and training policies and an overview of the employment and training system. (KC)
