This article discusses the employment and earnings of disadvantaged youth. In order to be effective, training and employment programs must consider the social, economic, and personal factors that contribute to the success or failure of disadvantaged youths. Analysis of an inner-city, experimental manpower training program indicates that employment opportunity and earning potential can be improved with a selective recruitment, training, and job placement process. Information is given about the outreach program, Project Build, which was created by the Greater Washington (D.C.) Central Labor Council in association with the building trades. There are fourteen "factor input" variables in the analysis, including the socioeconomic variables of age, work experience, marital status, and education.
