Manpower Report of the President.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
This 12th report's opening chapters highlight important recent developments in employment and unemployment and in legislation authorizing manpower and related programs. The significant, mixed pattern set by some 1973 indicators (reflecting accelerated inflation and a small decline in real weekly earnings) and employment trends in major industries, occupations, and population groups (including blacks and Vietnam veterans) are surveyed in Chapter 1. Chapter 2, "Manpower Programs: Moving Toward Decentralization," discusses features of the new law, plans for coping with the manpower aspects of the energy shortage, and developments in unemployment insurance. "The New Geography of Employment: Migration and the American Worker," Chapter 3, reviews recent patterns of labor force and population mobility. New evidence on past work experiences and opportunities for occupational advancement of different groups of workers are examined in Chapter 4. In conclusion, Chapter 5, "WIN II: A Progress Report," recounts the 1973 story of the Work Incentive Program. Reports on public employment, education and training under MDTA, the text of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973, and tables showing Department of Labor statistics on the labor force are appended.
