Testimony was given by Senator Barbara Mikulski; John Lynch, whose company prepared the report, "Workforce 2000"; Joan Patterson and Nelson Brooks, coexecutive directors of the United Auto Workers-Chrysler National Training Center; Clifford Ehrlich, senior vice president of human resources for Marriott Corporation; David L. Crawford, executive director of the Secretary's Commission on Work Force Quality and Labor Market Efficiency; and Ira Magaziner, chairman of the Commission on the Skills of the American Work Force.
