Tennessee Rural Manpower Service Report, 1974. MA-5-79.
Hayes, Sherrill W., Comp.
Reviewing the operations of the Rural Manpower Services as administered by the Tennessee Department of Employment, this annual report reveals factors which have influenced 1974 placement services for rural employers and workers. Areas covered include: planning; economic developments; employment and unemployment trends; services for rural people; Rural Manpower Service participation in community development activities; public relations activities; evaluations, problems, plans, and recommendations; selected data on farm placement operations; composition of interstate farm migrant workers; and interstate seasonal agricultural clearance activities. The following are among significant developments reported: crop losses were minimized due to the labor supplied employers; equity to access for rural applicants and employers was not fully attained, though migrant farm workers and rural area residents sustained priority; total resource allocations equaled the 80 percent as measured in terms of universe need; limited staff made expansion difficult; identification of applicants based on place of residence provided more accurate data; and value of land per acre increased at an accelerated rate (up $86 per acre from 1973).
