LABOR AND INDUSTRY
Sub-State Resource Distribution
[26 Pa.B. 2250]
Under 20 CFR 652.4 the Department of Labor and Industry is making public the following sub-state resource distributions. These distributions are for activities under the Wagner-Peyser Act as amended by the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) and are for the Program Year 1996 (July 1, 1996 through June 30, 1997). Under section 4 of the Wagner-Peyser Act, the Governor has designated the Department of Labor and Industry as the State agency vested with all powers necessary to cooperate with the United States Employment Service in the operation of the public Employment Service System.
The basic purpose of the Employment Service System is to improve the functioning of the nation's labor markets by bringing together individuals who are seeking employment and employers who are seeking workers. The Bureau of Employment Services and Training and the Office of Job Center Field Operations in the Department of Labor and Industry administer a labor exchange system which has the capacity:
1. to assist job seekers in finding employment;
2. to assist employers in filling jobs;
3. to facilitate the match between job seekers and employers;
4. to participate in a system for clearing labor between the states, including the use of standardized classification systems issued by the Secretary under JTPA section 462(c)(3); and
5. to meet the work test requirements of the State Unemployment Compensation system.
The sub-state resource distributions are for activities funded under section 7(a) of the Wagner-Peyser Act. Section 7(a) authorizes 90% of the sums allocated to each state to be used to support the basic labor exchange service.
The distributions are listed by the 28 Pennsylvania Service Delivery Areas. The monetary figures represent planned cost for personal salaries and personal benefits of Job Service/Job Center personnel delivering Wagner-Peyser Section 7(a) direct services within each Service Delivery Area (SDA).
The following formula was utilized in producing the sub-state resource distribution: 60% based on the civilian labor force within the SDA; 30% based on the number of unemployed within the SDA; 5% based on the number of non-college bound public and private high school graduates; and 5% based on the number of public and non-public high school dropouts (ages 21 and under).
The funding formula reflects Pennsylvania's Employment and Training Plan, the joint goals of the Job Training Partnership and Wagner-Peyser Acts Programs and the funding methodology from the Federal Government.
Interested parties wishing to comment on the sub-state resource distribution must do so in writing by the close of business on June 24, 1996. Comments should be forwarded to John C. Vogel, Director, Bureau of Employment Services and Training, Room 1115, Labor and Industry Building, Seventh and Forster Streets, Harrisburg, PA 17121.
