The Displaced Persons of the 1960s: The Unskilled, The Aging, And Youth

By Herbert Bienstock

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Winter 1962

The author predicts that the 1960s will see a huge influx into the labor market of both young people and people aged 45 and older. Women, too, will play an increasing role in the workforce, the author predicts. Noting the decline in American manufacturing jobs and the rise of professional and technical occupations, he contends that unskilled workers will find themselves "displaced" by the new economic realities. Specialized education and training for broad swathes of the workforce will become crucial, he concludes.
