State and Local Governments as Employers of Youth Trained in Vocational-Technical Schools. Final Report.
Stauber, Richard L.
This project was the research phase of a 3-part program designed to define the potential demand by state and local governments for youth trained by vocational-technical schools. Eleven county areas were selected in Wisconsin which contained a vocational school and a substantial number and variety of government personnel. Budgets, personnel rosters, job specifications, vocational school course offerings, and other documents were collected and reviewed, and interviews with government officials and school personnel were conducted. Over 6,500 employee questionnaire s were completed and processed. Some conclusions were: (1) The size of the sub-professional labor force of government was substantial, (2) Many preconditions of employment had been established by government, (3) A high proportion of vacant positions were filled by persons already employed by government, (4) The number of menial jobs for which vocationally trained youth would be over-qualified, comprised a substantially large portion of the positions, (5) Government did not compete with private industry in recruiting practices or monetary rewards, and (6) Very little was known about government jobs, either by the schools, the students, or the government employers themselves.
