Considerations in Selection of Public Service Employers: The Vermont Experience. Final Report.
Mattson, Robert E.; Rution, Joseph A.
In a Public Service Employment program of subsidized work training, nonprofit employers in the areas of health, education, social services, and government can be evaluated in terms of the client's employability growth, wages, supervision, retention, transferability, and client satisfaction. Client employability increases in all four areas of employment, though slowly for classroom and day care aides. Wage levels are in the $2.00 to $2.40 range; they are highest for municipal employees, lowest for paraprofessional aides, with clericals in the middle. Clients seem generally satisfied with their jobs and with the supervision in all four areas. Retention is especially high in health, higher education, and government owing to large payroll, high turnover, wide job variety, reliable budgeting, and favorable employer attitude toward the program. Retention is low for classroom and day care aides because there are few openings and little turnover. A tight job market restricts transferability. (Also included is a three-item bibliography and a list of tables.) (Author)
