Working with Organizations to Develop "New Careers" Programs. Technical Monograph No. 10, Publication No. 110.
Pruger, Robert; Specht, Harry
This report on a job creation program for poor people deals with the organizations within which jobs were created, the responses of the organizations to the jobs, and the techniques which seemed useful in working with the organizations. Major sections include: (1) Employment, Unemployment and New Careers, (2) Organizational Barriers, (3) The Forms of Resistance, and (4) Program Strategies. The program supported the assumption that poverty is not inherent in the human condition; the impulse to pass something better on to one's children is a major social force. The concept of new careers is a method of harvesting this energy. (JK)
