Labor Mobility Demonstration Project. Final Report.
Tuskegee Inst., AL.
The labor mobility program is designed to provide such counseling, technical, and financial assistance as will be needed to place retrained persons on jobs that make decent wages in other communities, in contrast to those programs which retrain persons for local employment. The general objectives include: developing jobs for persons having saleable skills, assisting these persons and their families in relocating to the job area, and identifying problems and providing solutions related to the relocation process. Over the past 2 years this experimental and demonstration relocation project has been instrumental in over 450 relocations of trained personnel. Its clientele has been mainly rural or farm displaced persons who have relocated mainly in an urban situation. The major objective of relocation should be aimed at human resource conservation and development. The immediate aim should be to place adults in self-supporting circumstances and ultimately to expose their children to opportunities and circumstances which will prevent the recycling of unemployment and subsequently deprivation. Job development, placement precedures, trial allowances, and loan-grant allowances are also discussed. (CH)
