Job Service North Dakota. Annual Rural Report, 1979.
During 1979, 27 Job Information Centers, manned in the local community on a volunteer basis, served as referral and information points for both applicants and employers and provided outreach services to rural areas. Of the 82,446 applicants seeking services, 54,153 were referred to jobs. Workers were placed in over 2,400 agricultural job openings. More than 30% of the approximately 34,000 individuals placed through the local offices of Job Service North Dakota were from rural areas. A total of 1,237 migrant and seasonal farmworkers, 58% of whom were interstate Hispanic migrants primarily from Texas, were registered with Job Service offices in 1979. Through the North Dakota Migrant Council, one-stop migrant service centers were operated during the peak interstate migrant season in four locations, providing bilingual job, health, and social services as well as legal aid. Nine migrant education centers provided programs for nearly 1,600 migrant children. In addition to information and statistics about program organization and services, the report presents 1979 crop production summaries, general crop conditions, a 1980 agricultural outlook, a farm labor outlook, U.S. Department of Labor Annual Rural Manpower Reports, and North Dakota Farm Labor and Rural Manpower Bulletins.
