Analysis and Summary of Current Manpower Trends and Policies. Second Edition.
National Association for Community Development, Washington, DC.
Recent redesigning of manpower programs reflects the shift toward the job and income approach to fighting poverty. Because money spent to provide jobs will ultimately reduce welfare costs, practically all manpower programs have undergone or will undergo significant redesign. This report was prepared to supply community development personnel and the general public with detailed information about these developments and to provide some analysis of their impact. Major emphasis is placed on the proposed Manpower Training Act of 1969, both because of its impact and because it is typical of present administration policy. This proposed act replaces previous legislation, such as the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962. Other programs under consideration are the Neighborhood Youth Corps, Public Service Careers, and Concentrated Employment Programs. (BH)
