The Vermont Survey of Employer Receptivity to Wage Subsidy Programs in the Private Sector.
Cashman, John R.; Mattson, Robert E.
The Vermont study details employer responses to a two-phase survey designed to gauge employer receptivity to the use of wage subsidies in the private sector. The "mail survey" obtained from a sample of 1,084 employers (of whom 71% responded) elicited responses to a limited number of questions, while the "face-to-face survey" asked a much greater number of more in-depth questions of a sample of 269 employers (of whose responses 249 were useable). The study details conditions under which employers would be willing to participate in a wage subsidy program (worker characteristics, job characteristics, subsidy characteristics, post-subsidy commitments, administrative considerations, training concerns, and supportive service concerns), characteristics of firms willing to participate (types, sizes, and occupational makeup), and judgmental aspects of wage subsidy programs (bidding process effectiveness, internal labor market considerations, competitive advantage, and net increase in jobs). Survey data are displayed in 36 tables and the survey instruments are appended. (Author/JR)
