Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE UTKttiOSI HOMO Satutdar, February 12, Project under way in Lethbridge Employment search more personalized By MARILYN ANDERSON HeraM Family Editor "Brand, spanking new" Is the way Fran Rude, Lethbridge case wrter in charge of the Employment Opportunities program for the provincial de- partment of social develop- ment, describes her project. Employment Opportuni- ties got under way in Leth- bridge Jan. 15 to provide long- term employment to persons on public assistance. It is estimated there are 000 persons in Alberta who are unemployed employables, that it those persons who are not employed but who are physi- cally and emotionally able to do ao. Sirs. Rude said unemployed employables "really do want to work." She said "one of the biggest problems we have to overcome is employers not wanting to ac- cept people on welfare as worthy employees. "We've had a pretty good reaction to the program so far, but it is still so new." She said finding jobs for the unemployed was still "quite tough" considering the time of year but "once the business community has accepted the program, it will be better." One advantage to employers, according to Mrs. Rude, was in knowing a bit of the employee's background ac It pertains to bis work. Employment Uies began as a Human He- sources Development project on June in Edmonton. Workers were placed with about 10 eligible clients each, to work with the client through- out his entire employment search. They tried to find out what the chart was suited for in employment, help him con- tact employers, give him in- formation about jobs and pre- pare him for the job. The foUowup work included a person contact with the cheat in the way of advice, tupport and encouragement. Mrs. Rude't association with her estimated eight clients will involve the same one-to-one relationship. She said it es- pecially motivated to provide encouragement for the eUeot who a motivated to work but who has bad doors to employ- ment closed frequently. Clients for the employment opportunities program are re- ferred to Mrs. Rude by other case workers in the regional of- fice.

Mrarily unemployed and not need our progran.. "We are also looking at beads of families, male or fe- male. Since we have no hostels in Letbbridge we must also consider single males and, of course, unwed mothers." Alcoholics and othnr handi- capped clients will be consid- ered for the program after they have been rehabilitated to the point of coping with their problem. The program is designed to meet both employers' needs by jroviding them with a man or woman who is able to work well, and to provide permanent employment to clients to t a k e them off, and keep them off, assistance rolls. The employment opportuni- ties program has been esti- mated by social development minister Ray Speaker as sav- ing the taxpayer an estimated !1 million during the fiscal rear. In 1969 and 1970. work was ound for 600 welfare recipi- ents on a full-tune basis, 250 jersons on a part-line ba- iis and 50 people were placed in training progruns Certain incentives are being offered to clients who are hi ;he employment opportunities >rogrant. Persons employed full-time are allowed additional income over his basic earnings al- owance. An additional per dependent up to a maximum of f75 is allowed before his social allowance would be cut. The client also receives fi- nancial assistance from the department for clothing, tools 'or employment and babysit- ing, if needed. Placement officers would also ensure that a client who was deeply in debt would not 'ace garnishee once he beean receiving a salary. The Debtor's Assistance Board can issue a stay order until the client can begin an orderly paymen' of debt. Providing this information is also part of the duties of the placement officer in getting and keeping his client on the road to self-sufficiency. Employm e n t opportunities provides for retraining and up- grading. Mrs. Eude said that only short courses of Canada Manpower were available this tune of year but training would be included1 hi future months. Mrs. Rude said that while the program might seem to overlap that of Canada Man- power, employment opportuni- ties has the facilities for fol- low through with clients that Canada Manpower cannot do. "We've had e x c e 11 e n t re- sponse from CMC and all our clients must be registered with their she added. WWle the Lethbridge project is a small beginning with one case worker and eight clients, it can be increased up to about active cases per worker. The department" is hopeful that as clients are taken off public assistance, the case load of other workers will be eased to provide more help for Mrs. Rude.
