Louisiana Annual Farm Labor Report. ES 225, 1970.
Louisiana State Dept. of Employment Security, Baton Rouge
Due to continued changes in Louisiana's agricultural economy, the supply and demand for seasonal and year-round farm workers changed during 1970. Therefore, the Rural Manpower Service's major emphases were directed toward worker and employer relations, recruitment, day-haul operations, and limited services to rural non-agricultural workers and employers. Primarily due to the lack of adequate resources, services to the rural non-farm population were limited to periods of little or no local agricultural activities. During 1970, the Rural Manpower Service also emphasized the role of public relations in strengthening public understanding of the agricultural and rural non-agricultural programs. This 1970 annual report presents data on the economic and employment trends, the impact of mechanization and other changes in production methods on seasonal hired workers, recruitment and utilization of farm workers, rural development and other community program activities, and public relations. Tabular data is given for farm placement operations, composition of interstate farm migrant groups, and interstate seasonal agricultural clearance activities. An outlook for the coming year is also presented. (NQ)
