Displaced Workers: Implications for Educational and Training Institutions.
Hollenbeck, Kevin, Ed.; And Others
This volume presents 19 papers and reactor comments from the third annual Policy Forum on Employability Development, which focused on the information and program options needed to prevent and ameliorate worker displacement. The first four papers describe and assess the context of the problem. Topics include national policy and local program response, policy recommendations emanating from the forum deliberations, and employment security. Two papers address private and public responsibilities for retraining displaced workers. The next six papers and reactor comments describe and assess operating programs for displaced workers, including two programs at two-year colleges, training programs negotiated through collective bargaining by the United Auto Workers, and Bethlehem Steel Corporation's program. A presentation on international experience and reactor comments follow. The next three research and evaluation papers and reactor comments examine use of unemployment insurance data to predict economic hardship from displacement and the economic impact of the Downriver Community Conference Economic Readjustment Activity Program. Finally, broad policy options to facilitate the reemployment of displaced workers and reactor comments are made. (YLB)
