Manpower Programs and Policies of the United States Education and Training Versus Job Creation. A Case Study.
Katt, Beaufort C.
This case study is an analysis of the existing and proposed manpower programs of the United States with specific attention made to two of its broad components. These are education/training and public service employment, sometimes called job creation. Information contained in this work was obtained through library research. Current information regarding reforms was obtained from Senate Hearings and the Congressional Quarterly. The following are major conclusions that can be drawn from this paper: Manpower programs have proliferated to an unmanageable degree. Trends in reforms are as follows: (1) Decentralization of programs to States, local government units. (2) Education/Training is a necessary ingredient of programs but a balance with other forms of manpower management is desirable. (3) Short term and permanent public service employment is strongly supported by States, cities and more resources (funds) will be committed to this end. (4) Reform proposals submitted to the 92nd Congress were, in the main, feasible alternatives to existing legislation. (Author)
