Summary

The Rural Manpower Service Section of the Louisiana State Department of Employment Security, responsible for providing services to agricultural and rural nonagricultural populations, implemented the Secretary of Labor's 13-Point Program. Providing manpower services to migrants, rural residents, and employers was emphasized. During 1973, 105.8 positions were allocated to the Rural Manpower Service programs. The program objectives intended to: (1) improve the quality and increase the quantity of permanent placements in agricultural and rural industries; (2) inform agricultural rural residents about various agency sponsored training programs; (3) provide services in application taking, counseling, testing, and referral to other supportive programs in governmental or private agencies; and (4) gather, interpret, and disseminate agricultural and rural labor market information. Topics in this 1973 annual report are: economic developments; employment and unemployment trends; services for rural people; programs and activities for farmworkers; and community development and public relations activities. Tabular data is given for farm placement operations; day-haul activities; composition of interstate farm migrant groups; interstate seasonal agricultural clearance activities; organization chart; comparison of rural and State labor force; and seasonal employment averages for selected fruits and vegetables for four quarters.
