1973 Annual Rural Manpower Report [State of Oregon].
Oregon State Dept. of Employment, Salem.
With increasing national and regional emphasis on serving the needs of rural people, especially migrants and farmworkers, increased effort was expended to provide services as effectively as possible. Problems remain, however, in clearly identifying and tallying these services so that efforts to provide equal access can reach all of the rural population. The first section of this 1973 Oregon Rural Manpower Report, planning, covers administrative organization, meetings attended during the year, and staff training programs. Economic developments include natural resources, energy, and trade. Employment and unemployment trends, comments from 21 local offices, and community development programs are also explained. Services for rural people cover Volunteer Rural Manpower Representatives, Seasonal Offices in "rural" and "urban" counties, the Central Oregon Functional Economic Area Project and the Cooperative Rural Manpower Project--Operation Hitchhike. Rural manpower programs and activities for farmworkers examine local recruitment programs, inter-area recruitment, and farm labor contractors. Problems remain in monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of operations and service delivery, however, because of the difficulty in obtaining information in regard to the Secretary of labor's 13 Points. The extensive tables include such things as argicultural activities, wages, and crops. (KM)
