GEORGIA 30314 February 3, 1968 PHONE 4 0 4 - 5 2 3 - 4 3 0 3 MULTI- PURPOSE TRAINING CENTER Mayor Ivan Al len Cit y Hall Atlant a, Georgia Dear Mayor Al len: During the past six weeks, members of Atlanta University OEO Multi-Purpose Training Center have received training at the Frank Riessrnan New Careers Laboratory of New York University. We are excited over the possibility of the new careers strategy for moving poor people out of poverty. Basically, the new careers idea provides an alternative avenue to the present credentials system based on high s chool diploma and other degrees for the achievement of professional and sld..lled positions. The approach requires that individuals be employed in a position with the existence of a career ladder, training and education, both in educational institutions and on the job. For individuals who have dropped out of the school system and who are hostile toward returning to it, this program seems to be a major opportunity. While the ne1-i careers approach is being tested in several major cities throughout the country, we feel that it is advisable to make key individuals in the Southeastern Region familiar with the approach. Accordingly, the Atlanta University OEO Multi-Purpose Training Center is interested in the possibility of a joint community action agencies and industry conference on the new careers strategy. Dr. Riessrnan has assured us of support and participation from his staff. This letter invites you or a designated person to serve on the planning committee for the regional conference. The planning committee will be concerned with the following items: 1. The desirability and feasibility of such a conference; 2. The conference participants; 3. Time and place; 4. Program content; and 5. Conference follow-up procedures. �February 3, 1968 Page 2 The new careers approach seems to be an excellent strategy for cooperating with President Johnson 1 s request of industry to employ hard core poor people, and for helping comrnuriity action agencies, welfare departments, boards of education, health departments , and other large public and private agencies, to provide career ladders vis-a-vis deadend jobs for the poor. Yow.~ early response to t his invitation will be appreciated greatly~ Sincerely yours, ff!?___g ~ad.~~ V/2~~ C. Cothran Director Multi-Purpose Training Center TCC :mk Sent to: Mr. James Parham Mr . W.L. Montague Mr . Wm. Norwood Mr. Donald Hollowell Mr. John Dean Mr. Clarence Coleman �

  • Text: I NEW CAREERS IN INDUSTRY Frank Riessman, Ph.D. Director. New Careers Devs in New York City include payment of the agency fee by the employer. "Comparable high percentages of fee-paid jobs would be found in other major cities", the officer said. "Many agencies will not even list an opening unless the fee is paid by the employer. It's a worker's market." (The average fee is 10% of the first month's salary.) A survey 0£ hiring costs paid by 17 firms in the Rochester, N. Y. area (9 manufacturing and 8 non-manufacturing firms) indicates a total over 3 months (June and November, 1965 and February, 1966) of $278,000, with 2/3 of this amount reported by the manufacturing companies, and the balance by the nonmanufacturing. Average cost per hire was $222 for manufacturers and $138 £or non-manfacturers. 1 i Spurred by the urgency of' their requirements, business firms invest heavily in improving the skills ' and knowledge of their employees with educational and training programs: "· • • In 1965 3usiness Week estimated a total amount of $18 billion and Fortune gave a higher figure of $2~ billion (spent by private industry in this area). More recently, it has been estimated that industry spent $17 billion in 1 966 in this area. 11 2 I I l \ ' Natl .

' Serv~ce institutions, such as banks, have also £ound it worthwhile to reach out to the disadvantaged £or recruiting workers and £acilitating education to them on the job. Chase Manhattan Bank established a job-training program in 1964 £or high school s~udents £rom the ha~d-core poverty areas. Many 0£ the trainees are potential drop-outs and have police records. Students entering the program at the junior year of high school receive 2l months 0£ basic education and instruction in banking and £inance. They attend classes at the bank from 2 to 5 p.m. daily and are paid $1.86 per hour. They continue to attend high school during the morning. Aft-2r g:cadua·i:ion they are hired for entry clerical positions. They may go on to college on their own time, with aid ~rom the bank via its tuition refund program. Xerox Corporation's Project Step-Up was another valuable demonstration of the response of the poor to a program that links education to employment. Project Step-Up was created to explore the fe a sibility of recruiting, hiring, training and giving remedial education to persons from the underprivileged community. The program was postulated on two basic assumptions: I I 1. It is good business, one that e nhances the pro£itmaking apparatus. 2. The company could cut a clear path for itself to a realistic solution for one of the nation's most complex problems: HovJ to open up skilled employment oppor tunities to the unemployed. j Many of the trainee s had police records, b ad credit ratings and spotty emp loym8nt hist o ries. i To qualify for training they had to be unemployed or underempioyed, receive substantially less than a pas s ing score on the ! company's regular employment te s ts and not have finished high school. (~ I The 19 week training period took place during the day-shift working hours.. 40% of the time was for classroom instruction, and the rest for work and informal counseling to support the new learning and adjustment to supervision and work ruleso Trainees were paid an hourly rate slightly below that for l I �-11\ .... regular new employees and were eligible for all company benefits. Al~ the trainees completed the program and qualified for regular employment. I Foremen reported that trainees adjusted well and met all standards. Xerox officials were impressed by the trainees' commitment, their perseverance and their overall reaction to the training, the work environment and to other employees. The regular employees strongly supported the program. A Xerox spokesman said that the program was economical because aside from the men who were trained, the company was able to hire immediately four times as many applic
