What Louisville Did For the Unemployed

By Harris Ginsburg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1915

The author describes Louisville's creation of a Public Free Employment Bureau, an attempt to redress the unemployment problem, and its failures and successes in matching people with jobs. He concludes that the Louisville experiment shows that a well-trained, disinterested municipal employment bureau can be of inestimable value to both the city and the unemployed, but also notes that its failure to place farm labor demonstrates that the problem of the unskilled unemployed cannot be solved by the so-often prescribed movement "back to the soil."[BREAK] Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities, 5:11
