Workforce 2000 : work and workers for the twenty-first century by William B Johnston( Book )

21 editions published between 1987 and 1993 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four key trends will shape the American labor force in the final years of the 20th century. The American economy should grow at a relatively healthy pace. Despite its international comeback, however, U.S. manufacturing constitutes a much smaller share of the economy in the year 2000 than it does today. The work force will grow slowly, becoming older, more female, and more disadvantaged. The new jobs in service industries will demand much higher skills. These trends raise a number of important policy issues. If the United States is to continue to prosper, policymakers must find ways to accomplish the following: stimulate balanced world growth; accelerate productivity increases in service industries; maintain the dynamism of an aging work force, reconcile the conflicting needs of women, work, and families; integrate Black and Hispanic workers fully into the economy; and improve the educational preparation of all workers. Because of the uncertainty of long-range economic forecasts, three scenarios of the U.S. economy in the year 2000 have been devised. The first of these, the baseline or "surprise-free" scenario, calls for a modest improvement in the growth rate that the nation experienced between 1970 and 1985 but not a return to the boom times of the 1950s and 1960s. The "world deflation" scenario focuses on the possibility that a worldwide glut of labor and production capacity in food, minerals, and manufactured goods could lead to a sustained deflation and sluggish economic growth. The third scenario, the "technology boom," postulates a powerful rebound in U.S. economic growth to levels that are comparable with the first two decades after World War ii. (Mn)
Indian giving : Federal programs for native Americans by Sar A Levitan( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aimed at highlighting American Indian reservation conditions, outlining the scope of Federal aid to Indians, and suggesting the nature of future Indian problems and choices, this book attempts to assess the current socioeconomic status of the Indian community and its relationship with the Federal Government. Specifically, this book provides both narrative and statistical information re: (1) Indian Population (migration and Federal policy and Indian legal status); (2) Economic Conditions and Economic Development (income and employment; agricultural, forest, and mineral resource development; and industrial development); (3) Education (attainment; educational performance; the Indian school system; community control; aid to higher education; adult and vocational education; manpower training); (4) Health and Family Status (illnesses and mortality rates; family and marital status; birth rates and age distribution; Indian Health Service; the impact of the Indian Health Service); (5) Social Services (public assistance; housing; law enforcement; trust responsibilities and services; community development and tribal self-determination); (6) "The Indian Question" (underlying facts and policy considerations). Also presented are tabular data covering the years 1955-74 reported in 18 tables and 9 charts. (Jc)
Work is here to stay, alas by Sar A Levitan( Book )

6 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the numbers published by the U.S. Bureau of the Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other sources, the book examines what has happened to work in America during the present century, analyzes the attempts to change the nature of that work, and makes projections about the future of work. Though the study reveals far-reaching changes occurring in work and its meaning for individuals, no end to work, no crisis of discontented workers, and no sweeping "humanization" of jobs are foreseen. Topics covered are: What is happening to work?, The meaning of work, the survival of work, the new workforce, dissatisfaction in the workplace, the changing nature of work, the evolving quality of work, work reform in perspective, job redesign experiments, limitations of job reform, and the future of work. Concluding that work may always be a fixture in society, but also perhaps unrecognizably transformed in the future, the authors project that rather than being required labor to produce necessities, work may become whatever purposeful activity individuals wish to engage in, and that the most which can be accomplished is free choice in work for all individuals.

Minorities in the United States : problems, progress, and prospects by Sar A Levitan( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book organizes and synthesizes basic factual information concerning the changing status of blacks, Puerto Ricans, Mexican Americans, and American Indians. It specifically provides the highlights of data on income, employment, and education of minorities and sketches the broad patterns as revealed through federally published statistics and other public and private resource documents. The book is divided into six chapters. Chapter one, an overview, emphasizes the need for a closer look at the difficulties of minority groups. Chapters two through five stress the particular problems of each group separately. Chapter six reviews the positive and negative aspects of the present situation and makes predictions for the future. Each chapter presents tables, charts, and graphs to accompany the text. (Author/DB)
