BUSINESS THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30,1987 Carousel Carpets hires PIC trainees By LI BEI WEN Journal Correspondent One of the amis of the Private Industry Council of Mcndocino County is the On-Thc-Job Training Program, coordinated by Rose Ellis. Her responsibility is to recruit and screen possible employees, persuade perspective employers to participate, and negotiate the contracts between the two. During 1985-86, the department arranged 90 contracts and used almost S134,000 to implement jobs for these trainees. PIC riays half of the salary for the employee for a specified period of time. The money comes from the Job Training Partnership Act, a federally legislated program to job train economically disadvantagcd youths and adults. The state has designated Mcndocino County as a Service Delivery Area to administer the funds. PIC and ihccOunly board of supervisors decide how the funds will be spent locally. "Everything we do is to help people obtain employment. It is a partnership aspect," Ellis Said. PIC is also governed by a board of directors, appointed by the supervisors to serve two year terms. "The goal is to assist employers to hire people they wouldn't now hire because of training costs. We reimburse them for that training," Ellis said. In preparing people for job application, the program directors work closely with other agencies. People with reading problems will get help from the Literary Alliance of Mcn- docino County. They learn the basic reading skills and arc assisted in filling out job forms and applications. Counseling and job assessment are also part of the preparation, Ellis said. "We can encourage employers to hire the unskilled people and offer them money as the carrot," she said. The advantage to the employer is that Ellis prc-scrccns prospective employees, only refers qualified applicants, and pays half the salary during the training period. "The employer is not obligated to hire the referral and has complete control over the hiring and firing of the employee. They arc treated like any other employee. The length of the contract is dependent on the ability of the trainee and the complexity of the job involved. Recently three employees received certificates for completing their training at Carousel Carpets. Rob Phillips, vice president and controller of the firm, said their participation in the program had been very successful and pleasant. "We got three excellent employees and arc very pleased with the result," he said.

Business Mirror Japanese save while Americans spend Rules eased for vineyard workers SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Rules have been cased for laborers working in vineyards treated with the pesticide Zolonc, a chemical blamed in the poisoningbf some 70 farm workers earlier this month. State Food and Agriculture officials decided to limit the number of blood tests on field workfers because tests revealed protective boots, gloves and coveralls were preventing excessive exposure of Zolonc, said Jim Wells, a pesticide enforcement officer. A temporary stop harvest order was issued Sept. 9 for about 50 vineyards in 12 counties that were treated with Zolone. Workers exposed to high levels of the chemical can experience a flu-like illness. NEW YORK (AP) — When the personal savings rate in America fell to just 1.8 percent in August it resurrected a spate of comparisons with the Japanese, whose long-term savings rate is close to 20 percent. Why do the Japanese, and citizens of almost every other industrial nation, save . more than Americans? Some students of the subject contend that the difference isn't as real as the statistics suggest, and that Americans really dp "save" a great deal of money that is never counted as savings — because they invest it in their homes. But isn't that money spent — not saved?

To them, the money is merely stored in the home, where it earns "interest" at a much higher rate than if it were left with the local bank. To such critics, therefore, the official savings rate badly understates the conscrvalivcncss of American savers. While conceding that Americans might tend to be bigger spenders than others, they argue that the difference between Americans and others is not nearly so vast as suggested by the statistics. Of all the reasons mentioned for the differences between Americans and Japanese, there appears to be a great degree of agreement that governmental attitudes, especially regarding taxes, is an important factor. In the United States, fo^cxamplc, savings interest is taxed; in Japan it is not. In Japan home mortgage interest is taxed; in the United States it is not. To save money in the bank, therefore, is smart for Japanese residents. For Americans to save by investing in a home, then borrowing on it, makes sense. Cultural differences play an obvious part in the different savings rates. Americans arc old hands at consumption. Advertising and marketing methods arc finely honed and strategically aimed at enticing the consumer to part with their dollars. In Japan the consumer society is young, and still not developed. Rather than consuming themselves, the Japanese have perfected the science of exporting their products to other nations.
