Job Training That Gets Results: Ten Principles of Effective Employment Programs

Michael S. Bernick

""With fresh insights gleaned from decades of experience, Michael Bernick addresses the human-capital challenge of preparing low-wage workers for the global economy. His realistic focus on incentives provides a road map for future policy." –Michael Milken, chairman, Milken Institute

"In this book, Mr. Bernick goes beyond the conventional social welfare and social services strategies for unemployed and low income workers. He shows how our nation's job training systems can be reshaped to get results." –Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California

"The United States is entering the age of the global economy. Michael Bernick's book shows how we can build an effective worker training and retraining system to succeed in this economy. Bernick headed the largest state department of labor and brings extensive practical experience to this book." –Gen. Barry McCaffrey, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, 1996–2001

"Mike Bernick's 'Job Training That Gets Results: Ten Principles of Effective Employment Programs' is compelling because the principles flow clearly from three virtues rarely found in one author: an in-depth understanding of the relevant research, practical experience as a program manager, and a refreshing willingness to challenge conventional wisdom." –Steve Crawford, policy director, National Governors Association

"The book for employment practitioners and all of us concerned about America's future workforce." –San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom
