Reemployment Assistance for Engineers, Scientists, and Technicians Unemployed Because of Aerospace and Defense Cutbacks. Report to Congress.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
As a report on the Department of Labor's Technology Mobilization and Reemployment (TMR) program, findings and conclusions from an evaluative review are presented in this volume. Information is obtained from state eployment security offices in Los Angeles and Van Nuys, California; Seattle; Denver; and New Orleans. The program accomplishments are found to fall short in terms of assisting applicants in finding jobs and of providing financial assistance to participants. Factors adversely affecting accomplishment of programs include insufficient job development and placement assistance, failure to provide follow-up efforts, and inadequate monitoring. The reluctance of former aerospace employees to abandon the hope of a resurgence of industry and its well-paying jobs or to move from the areas where major aerospace firms are located are among the problems encountered by the program. Included are recommendations for further continuation, two letters between the Department of Labor and the General Accounting Office, and a list of principal officials responsible for the program administration.
