Agri-Business Manpower Report.
Amberson, Max L.; And Others
The first of a series of surveys initiated by Montana as part of a statewide study to determine employment and educational inequities which plague rural youth and adults, this report presents the results of the first phase of a long-range agricultural manpower project. To delineate the extent and nature of existing agri-business employment opportunities so that effective vocational programs in the high schools could be developed, data were obtained from agribusiness firms throughout the State. Information collected from questionnaires, telephone conversations, and personal interviews resulted in these findings: (1) The greatest need for agricultural employees will emerge over the next 3 years; (2) The greatest demand for workers came from businesses dealing in agricultural supplies and services, and farm mechanics; and (3) Vacancies existed only in service, skilled labor, and sales positions. Implications and recommendations are included. (SN)
