Georgia Labor Mobility Demonstration Project. December 1, 1967-December 31, 1968. Final Report.
Georgia State Dept. of Labor, Atlanta. Employment Security Agency.
The effectiveness of using financial assistance and supportive services was studied in order to increase the ability of unemployed workers and reduce unemployment in Georgia. The project's close cooperation with the ongoing program of the employment service is evidenced by the fact that 99 percent of the workers obtained their jobs through the public employment service. Local employment service office managers and area supervisors assisted in designing the goals and purposes of the project, and in deriving the methods of operation and functional position of labor mobility. Of 793 persons eligible for relocation assistance, 282 were successfully physically relocated: 220 intrastate relations and 62 interstate relocations. Only 38 relocations were unsuccessful, 30 intrastate and 8 interstate. Organization and staffing, operations, and the relocation process are discussed in detail. Based on findings which evidence achievement of the basic purposes of the project, it was concluded that an ongoing nationwide program similarly conducted would materially and positively affect the national economy.
