Transportation as a Factor in the Delivery of Rural Manpower Services in Public Service Employment. Final Report.
Lawrence, Frederick T.; And Others
The Vermont Experimental and Demonstration Manpower Pilot Project placed low income unemployed individuals in wage subsidized job slots in public and nonprofit agencies, anticipating that the work experience and related job skills gained would enable them to acquire nonsubsidized employment. A quantitative analysis is presented of 196 Special Work clients confronted with the problems of private transportation. Although sincere efforts were made to combat each individual transportation problem (Training Related Expense monies for repairs, car pools, etc.), it was found that the severe lack of public transportation and poor condition of private vehicles were in many cases the prime factors for clients terminating training. Several suggested solutions are presented. (Also included is a list of tables.) (Author)
