Guidelines for the Employment of the Culturally Disadvantaged.
Fine, Sidney A.
The "culturally disadvantaged" are men and women over 16, regardless of race, who live outside the mainstream of American life in urban ghettos and isolated rural areas. They are functionally illiterate people. The time for crash programs to employ these people has passed; the total involvement approach is necessary. These employment guidelines are a distillation of knowledge gained from research and from the experiences of private industry and the U.S. Government in its demonstration programs. The 12 guidelines presented are concerned with: (1) preparation of the business or organization for the employment of the culturally disadvantaged, (2) the hiring process itself, and (3) the problems of placement, training, and promotion or mobility. In conclusion, some observations are made concerning the possible gains in the total personnel operation as a result of implementing some of the guidelines. (CH)
