28 p. 

The report highlights policy implications of research conducted on formal and informal labor market information systems and the disadvantaged. Policy implications are developed at the end of each of eight sections reviewing studies in the areas of: insurance, an inner-city training program, newspaper ads, the Job Bank system, immigrant labor, criminal participation in an age-work adjustment framework, the early labor market experience of young men, and a special type of disadvantaged, unemployed aerospace engineers. The report concludes with a summary of policy recommendations for the disadvantaged in the areas of: the development of informal information networks; the need for support systems in the internal labor market of firms; the need for help from short-run formal labor market information systems; improved access by way of the Job Bank to available entry level jobs; further immigration to fill low-wage jobs; education and employment opportunities to help young people avoid arrest and imprisonment and better work training programs in prisons; improved employer-designed job enrichment efforts or more demanding first jobs; and, for displaced professionals, improved manpower programs, counseling, and job development. Appendixes list the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard studies referred to in the report. (NH)
