Nixon, R. A.
Plans for the development of New Careers nonprofessional public service employment are now a major element in all manpower and human service programs. This new stage in the developing New Careers program is defined by a variety of factors. Specific New Careers program amendments were added in 1968 to the various laws enacted by the 90th Congress. Major new administrative actions have been taken to extend and apply New Careers manpower and human service concepts. The Department of Labor has announced a new manpower program. In some still pending legislation, the New Careers program will need to be added. Legislation enacted so far and described in this booklet relates to economic opportunity, all levels of education, health, welfare, government employment, and general manpower. It is concluded that legislative opportunities for advancing the New Careers program are numerous and great. The variety of the legislative areas to which the New Careers program relates gives a great opportunity for increased appreciation and application of the program. (CK)
