49b. Putting People Back to Work
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached

Unlike Herbert Hoover, who refused to offer direct assistance to individuals, Franklin Roosevelt knew that the nation's unemployed could last only so long. Like his banking legislation, aid would be immediate. Roosevelt adopted a strategy known as "priming the pump." To start a dry pump, a farmer often has to pour a little into the pump to generate a heavy flow. Likewise, Roosevelt believed the national government could jump start a dry economy by pouring in a little federal money.

Energy and Manufacturing: Cluster Workforce Analyses
Rating

This resource contains two reports that analyze several of Michigan's labor market measures in the energy and manufacturing industries. These measures include employment concentration, trends, forecasts, key occupations, education program completers, and workforce demographics. These reports are designed to be an additional tool to assist in the implementation of the Michigan Industry Cluster Approach (MICA). MICA focuses on aligning efforts "“ initiatives, programs, and funding "“ around priority clusters for a demand-driven workforce system. A key activity of MICA is the convening of groups of employers to identify and develop solutions to address workforce needs. The findings within these reports are intended to provide a road map that leads to stronger partnerships and a more effective workforce development system.
