Abstract:

Current manpower policies have been characterized as experimentation with ideology, methods and programs aimed at providing an optimum solution to the unemployment dilemma of the disadvantaged. A proliferation of programs and a lack of long-range planning has been inherent during the 1960s. The report notes, however, that although a suitable means of evaluating the efficiency of the program was not available, needs were probed, lessons were learned, and useful services were identified. The present research consisted of a review of selected literature and a critique of contemporary manpower programs which emerged during the 1960s. An analysis of the successes and failures provided the basis for some conclusions.
