com puting machine on the lives of most of us and the adjust ments it necessitates Compu ters however are only a part of the revolution taking place today as automation works its way through our economy cutting down the number of jobs for any given tasks and making necessary farreaching shifts in employment if not idleness My purpose now is to discuss what our government is doing in this revolution For the most part it is the unskilled laborer who is first thrown out of work with the onward march of the machine The problem is to pro vide workers with skills that will still be in demand This is what the federal gov ernment is seeking to accom plish through a program author ized by the Manpower Develop ment and Training Act of 1962 When President Kennedy signed this act into law last spring he called it Perhaps the mosl significant legislation in the area of unemployment since the historic Employment Act o 1946 The comparison is apt The 1946 law was aimed at assuring full employment and the 1962 law has a fundamental goal oJ retraining the longterm unem ployed who lack the skills to find new jobs The plight of these people constitute what the President has called major domestic challenge Of the 1960s to maintain full employment at a time when automation is replacing men Although the bill was signec into law March 15 this year funds to put it into operation didnt become available unti the latter part of August Since then the program has been launched and is gaining momen turn The purpose of the new law is to provide training and re training for jobless men anc women during the threeyear life of the act Several thou sand workers already have com pleted retraining under the more limited provisions of the Area Development Act of 1961 which was directed exclusively to easing unemployment in de pressed areas Experience under that pro gram and lessons learned from state local and private retrain ing efforts indicate that many obstacles lie in the path of the enlarged effort It isnt easy to retrain workers and get them into other more productive jobs Ill mention some of these ob stacles later That the federal government is moving ahead on the new project became evident in an October report At that time the Department of Labor had okayed 239 training programs in 28 states Applications of some 10000 persons had been approved for training in one or another of a long list oc cupations ranging from auto mobile mechanic service sta tion attendant and welder to such jobs as electronics data processor labora t o r y tech nician machine operator and typist Just how big is this problem of retraining and how many persons are likely to be involved in this transition to the age of automation Labor Department officials say that in the 195359 period there was dtsemployment of 1130000 workers in manufactur ing industries D i s e m ploy ment is the term used to cover reduced employment stemming from increased output per man hour through more efficient machinery The study concluded that the decrease in jobs for this rea son in nonagricultural indus tries might reach 200000 work ers yearly for a decade AFL CIO economists estimate that Turn
