Matching Youth and Jobs? Gender Dynamics in New Deal Job Training Programs.
Werum, Regina
Social Forces, v81 n2 p473-503 Dec 2002
A study examined whether federal New Deal policy goals matched local policy outcomes in Mississippi, Georgia, and North Carolina. Data from 337 counties indicate that policy outcomes matched goals in that women's access to vocational training remained narrowly constrained. Additional funds mostly benefitted men's programs. Contrary to Congressional intent, access to programs remained disconnected from local labor markets. Contains 85 references. (TD)
