Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Social Affairs Div.
The major purpose of a seminar held in Wiesbaden, Germany, was to exchange experiences and views on the methods of expediating adjustment of rural and foreign workers to industry. Major presentations for discussion were "Internal Migration" by Magda Talamo, and "International Migration" by Elie Dimitras. Some conclusions were: (1) Movement of the rural population and foreign labor into industry is significant, (2) Provisions should be made for adjustments to insure more effective employment of migrants, (3) The greatest adjustment problems are for foreign groups moving into industry, (4) Varied and great efforts are being made by employers and unions to ease the movement of people, (5) Systematic procedures are being developed, and (6) Adjustment programs must be adapted to new needs and problems. The appendixes contain five reports concerning internal and international migration, adapting rural and foreign workers to industry, the role of employers, and the role of trade unions. The conference was attended by 46 participants from 17 countries and nine participants from international organizations. (DM)
