Employment and Training Needs of Hispanics in Michigan. Program Design.
Michigan State Dept. of Management and Budget, Lansing. Office of Management Practices.
This report, last in a series describing employment and training needs of Hispanics in Michigan, synthesizes the information presented in preceding volumes in order to identify target group needs and make recommendations for policy formulation and program development. Chapter I describes the study's scope and method. Chapter II provides a socioeconomic profile of Michigan's Hispanic population by summarizing demographic traits, labor force status and trends, social and economic status, employment and training behavior, and urban-rural differentials, and then outlines the needs of six target groups: youth, women, displaced workers, technologically obsolescent workers, small business owners, and postsecondary students. Chapter III then describes Federal and State legislation, services provided by the State government, and innovative programs designed for or affecting each of the target groups. The last chapter lays out both multi-group and specific group program options that can be applied to employment and training needs of Hispanics in Michigan. Pertinent legislation relating to these needs is summarized in a table at the back of the report. (CJM)
