Job Training Lags for Rural Workers.
Swaim, Paul L.
Rural Development Perspectives, v10 n3 p53-60 Jun 1995
Current Population Survey data indicate that in 1991, only 40% of rural workers had received training on current jobs. Less educated, minority, and Southern rural workers were particularly unlikely to receive training. The nonmetropolitan training rate rose modestly, 1983-91, but less rapidly than the metropolitan rate, suggesting that fewer rural firms adopted high-skill production strategies. (Author/SV)
