Palm Beach Post, Monday, Nov. 11, l-9 (CIN Y.TImr Nnra Service WASHINGTON Private businesses in 50 cities have succeeded in placing more than 84,000 "hard-core" unemployed persons, three-quarters of them Negro, in Jobs since last spring. President Johnson was told. The National Alliance for Businessmen reported that it was now confident of meeting its goal of 100,000 jobs by next June 30 well ahead of sched ule. The longer term goal is 500,000 jobs by mid-1971. Altogether, the report said, nearly 12, 000 orivate employers in the 50 cities have placed 84,000 workers, and 61,273 of them were on the job as of Sept. 30. These workers met various tests of "hard-core" unemployment. For example, those now on the job were out of work an average of 25 weeks in 1967 and had family Income averaging $2,773. The report was compiled by Leo C. Bf?be, full-time vice-chairman of the committee and a former executive of Ford Motor Co. Beebe said "the record of hard-core placements and retention so far Is gratifying." The National Alliance of Businessmen was formed earlier this year at President Johnson's urging, with Henry Ford as chairman. Its sole purpose is job creation. If the goal of 500.000 jobs by mid-1971 is met, a major dent would be made in the hardcore unemployment problem, at least In urban areas. Of the approximately 60,000 In jobs at the end of September, one-third were helped by government training subsidies and the rest were placed by employers without a government contract. Beebe said the government had spent about $61 million on' the program and private employers had spent "well over $100 million for workers employed to date." The report gave these characteristics of the hard-core jobless hired so far: 73 per cent men, 27 per cent women; 78 per cent Negro, 6 percent Mexican-American, 2 per cent Puerto Rican, 11 per cent white and 3 per cent of "other origin," 70 per cent between 20 and 40 years old and another 17 per cent under 20. The new jobs were about divided between manufacturing and other types of business. When Shopping Use P-T Classified Many 'Unemployed' Hired, Report Says If TONIGHT 8 P.M.
