Summary

In 1971, Louisiana's Rural Manpower Service provided the agricultural and rural non-agricultural populations with such services as placement services which included promotion and development of training programs with priority to veterans and other special applicant groups; processing clearance orders and foreign labor importation requests; collecting and dissemination labor market information; providing assistance in Occupational Analyses, industrial service, and testing; and recruiting youth for Job Corps and other special youth programs. This 1971 annual report presents data on economic and employment trends; the impact of mechanization and other changes in production methods on seasonal hired workers, recruitment and utilization of farm workers, rural development and other community program activities, farm placement operations, public relations; composition of interstate farm migrant groups, interstate seasonal agricultural clearance activities, and rural non-agricultural services. Data indicate that during 1971: there was a decline in placement activity, out-of-area job placements, and employer services in pulpwood, logging, and agriculture; there was an increase in Alien Employment Certification activities; and increased use of mechanical harvesting equipment and reluctance of most workers to enter jobs in the pulpwood and logging industry accounted for the small drop in pulpwood and logging placements.
