Training Programs of Private Industry in the Greater Cleveland Area.
Iacobelli, John Louis
Using personal interviews with 131 employers (establishments) in greater Cleveland, this study surveyed current policies, practices, and attitudes in training advantaged and disadvantaged labor, and sought to determine the best possible way to coordinate Federal and private training programs. The research covered such matters as skill shortages; training by private industry versus other labor procurement methods, factors influencing training, industry's manpower projections, problems with disadvantaged labor, the impact of Federal training programs, periodic reporting by industry, and Federal financial incentives for training. It was concluded that Federal financial aid for industrial training of advantaged workers should be considered, and should be tied to commitments from individual employers to train an equal number of the disadvantaged under two or three year contracts, during which Federal funds would pay much of the cost. Because of the nature of private training programs, a tight labor market is the best motivator to cause employers to increase training, especially for the disadvantaged. Therefore, the Federal government should maintain a tight labor market and create jobs for disadvantaged labor. (Author/LY)
