A Review of Youth Employment Problems, Programs & Policies: Volume 2. Special Needs and Concentrated Problems.
Vice President's Task Force on Youth Employment, Washington, DC.
This series of nine reports reviews available information on the special needs and concentrated problems of youth employment. (It constitutes the second of a three-volume compendium; other volumes examine causes and dimensions of youth employment problems and analyze program experience--see note.) The effects of discrimination on minority youth unemployment are discussed in the first article. An analysis of the black youth employment problems and related policy suggestions are provided in the next two reports. The issue of young women and work is addressed in a labor market profile. The next two reports discuss the Hispanic perspective on youth unemployment policies as well as data, problems, issues, and needs relevant to public policy on Hispanic youth. An approach to increasing the employability of youthful drug users is described. Problems of urban youth employment and special urban funding needs are examined. Background material on youth employment policy is supplied in the last report. (MN)
