The Labor Market Framework of Job Development: Some Problems and Prospects. Manpower Training Series.
Nixon, R. A.
This monograph is addressed principally to the policy maker and program planner dealing with job development, and defines some of the limits, problems, and needs of the field. Primarily, job development is concerned with the demand side of the labor market equation, dealing with the availability of job openings in general or for a particular group, and with the demand for workers. But the supply side--workers' qualifications and training--must also be considered by the job developer as he tries to lower the unemployment rate. While a generalized increase in labor demand will automatically dissolve a large section of the marginal jobless labor force, an important residue of disadvantaged unemployed who require special care and assistance to realize their potential as workers will remain. In this context, the paper considers the following topics: (1) Labor Market Information--Needs, Sources, and Gaps, (2) Workers and Jobs, (3) The Hiring Process, and (4) Full Employment, Job Development, and Job Creation.
