Resolving the Manpower Paradox: Workers Without Jobs: Jobs Without Workers. State of New York--Legislative Document (1969)--Number 84.
New York State Senate, Albany.
This report culminates 2 years of a major policy inquiry into New York's manpower problems by the State Senate's Special Senate Committee on Manpower. Part One gives data showing unemployment by occupation, race, education, and place of residence. The effects on the disadvantaged of changing employment patterns are demonstrated, and various manpower programs are evaluated. Part Two discusses the implications of these findings for welfare, unemployment insurance, and manpower development programs. For policy and planning the committee recommends a central manpower advisory board composed of industry, labor, academic, and government experts capable of formulating a comprehensive manpower development plan. Policy should concentrate on making employment more attractive than welfare, and improving the structural imbalance of the labor market by improving the skills of surplus manpower and offering a labor exchange to improve mobility. An independent and permanent source of funds is needed to supplement state and federal funds and might be acquired through a special unemployment insurance tax payable by the employer as an investment in a more effective employment service program.
