Abstract:

During the 1980s, an average of 2 million workers per year lost full- time jobs and were not recalled by their former employers. At the request of the Subcommittee on Human Resources of the House Committee on Ways and Means, this study examines what lessons might be learned from the experiences of these displaced workers. The study looks at the numbers and characteristics of the workers displaced an investigates workers experiences after displacement. It also describes the major programs that were available to help these workers and discusses the implications of the studys findings for future federal policy. In accordance with the Congressional Budget Offices CBOs mandate to provide objective and impartial analysis, this study makes no recommendations.
