Manpower Planning Strategies for Emergency Public Employment. Final Report.
Rutstein, Jacob J.; Schick, Richard P.
This report presents a plan indicating how State and local governments might hire the unemployed and the underemployed for government jobs under the provisions of laws such as the Emergency Employment Act. Two major jurisdictions were selected for the field study, the city of Chicago and the State of Connecticut, to represent a broad spectrum of the labor and job markets. The report discusses planning program and personnel needs, survey procedures, and organizational arrangements needed for an emergency public employment program. Problems to be overcome include: (1) changing civil service requirements that act as barriers to emergency public employment, (2) restructuring jobs so that the low-skilled can perform them, and (3) providing career development opportunities for emergency public employees so that they can move to permanent jobs in private industry or in government. The report suggests in general terms a broad range of alternatives for State and local governments to follow to employ the unemployed and underemployed for work that would otherwise remain undone.
