After Training. A Followup Report on MDTA-Course Graduates.
Solomon, Herman S.
A survey of 825 Manpower Development and Training Act (MDTA) graduates was made to evaluate MDTA programs. A total of 569 responded, representing 69 percent of the sample. The responses indicated that 80 percent of the graduates were employed and over two-thirds held training-related jobs. Sixty percent were between 22 and 45 years of age. A higher proportion of males than females remained in the labor force after training. The unemployment rate was highest (12 percent) for the 45 and older age group. Earnings of MDTA graduates exceeded pretraining earnings by 50 cents an hour in 69 percent of the cases. The median earnings for male graduates was $2.67 per hour and for females $2.12 per hour. (BC)
