Sec. 2501. Findings; statement of purpose

-STATUTE-

(a) Findings

The Congress finds that -

(1) American businesses now and for the remainder of the 20th

century will face a dramatically different labor market than the

one to which they have become accustomed;

(2) two in every three new entrants to the work force will be

women, and to meet labor needs such women must work in all

occupational areas including in apprenticeable occupations and

nontraditional occupations;

(3) women face significant barriers to their full and effective

participation in apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional

occupations;

(4) the business community must be prepared to address the

barriers that women have to such jobs, in order to successfully

integrate them into the work force; and

(5) few resources are available to employers and unions who

need assistance in recruiting, training, and retaining women in

apprenticeable occupations and other nontraditional occupations.

(b) Purpose

It is the purpose of this chapter to provide technical assistance

to employers and labor unions to encourage employment of women in

apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional occupations. Such

assistance will enable business to meet the challenge of Workforce

2000 by preparing employers to successfully recruit, train, and

retain women in apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional

occupations and will expand the employment and self-sufficiency

options of women. This purpose will be achieved by -

(1) promoting the program to employers and labor unions to

inform them of the availability of technical assistance which

will assist them in preparing the workplace to employ women in

apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional occupations;

(2) providing grants to community-based organizations to

deliver technical assistance to employers and labor unions to

prepare them to recruit, train, and employ women in

apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional occupations;

(3) authorizing the Department of Labor to serve as a liaison

between employers, labor, and the community-based organizations

providing technical assistance, through its national office and

its regional administrators; and

(4) conducting a comprehensive study to examine the barriers to

the participation of women in apprenticeable occupations and

nontraditional occupations and to develop recommendations for the

workplace to eliminate such barriers.
