National Manpower Policy
Briggs, Vernon M. Jr
[Excerpt] In terms of governmental concern for the operation of the labor market, the 1960's has been called the era of the manpower revolution. During this decade the United States constructed the foundation for a national manpower policy. Although the evolution of this policy has been piecemeal and at times more hortative than substantive, it represents a significant departure from past attitudes regarding society's responsibilities to its members.
