A National Manpower Policy: Training and Employing the Unemployables.
Goettel, Donald J.
Current manpower policies have been characterized as experimentation with ideology, methods and programs aimed at providing an optimum solution to the unemployment dilemma of the disadvantaged. A proliferation of programs and a lack of long-range planning has been inherent during the 1960's. The report notes, however, that although a suitable means of evaluating the efficiency of the program was not available, needs were probed, lessons were learned, and useful services were identified. The present research consisted of a review of selected literature and a critique of contemporary manpower programs which emerged during the 1960's. An analysis of the successes and failures provided the basis for some conclusions. (Author)
