Job Training for Low Income Women: The Need for Change.
Steiger, JoAnn M.; Szanton, Eleanor S.
This document presents the conclusions and recommendations of a study conducted to explain the inequalities faced by low-income women in job training, employment, and earnings. The study explored the dimensions of the problems such women face, possible solutions, and the extent to which a group of Health Education and Welfare (HEW) and HEW-related programs address or fail to address those solutions. This document is divided into two major sections. Section 1 presents the conclusions and recommendations and a summary of the report. A brief description of nine federal programs which have potential for helping low income women are also included in this section. Section 2 reports the study in more detail. It provides a discussion of the issues involved and information from the assessment of selected programs with potential for assisting low-income women to increase their earning power. Conclusions and recommendations are also included in section 2. The following information is appended: a discussion of women in non-traditional jobs; selected budget data on several federal programs included in this study; a glossary of terms; and an explanation of vocational-technical education categories.
