Annual Rural Manpower Services Report. Texas Rural Manpower Services 1976 Annual Report. MA5-79.
Texas Employment Commission, Austin.
Effective February 1976, the Rural Manpower Services Department was integrated totally with the Placement Department, thus removing any rural/urban separation of services. This new concept allowed the provision of equal services to all segments of the work force. Continuing emphasis was placed on providing manpower services to rural residents with special emphasis to migrant and seasonal farmworkers. To strengthen services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers, an additional monitor/advocate was assigned to the Employment Service Director's staff. This 1976 annual report presents information on meetings attended, staff training programs, the impact of rural industrialization and related developments, the impact of agricultural mechanization and changing production techniques, agricultural and farm employment trends, services for rural people, Rural Manpower programs and activities for farmworkers, crew leader registration, annual worker plan and clearance, Rural Manpower Services participation in community development activities, selected data on farm placement operations, composition of interstate farm migrant groups, interstate seasonal agricultural clearance activities, and statewide seasonal farm employment. Attached is a copy of the Farm Labor Bulletin which provides general information on the surplus labor, future needs, and local crop conditions around the state. (NQ)
