"I URGE all employers every-
where to list their job openings with
USES" -President Truman
RAPID REEMPLOYMENT of our discharged servicemen is a
matter of high national importance. the success or failure of a
veteran's readjustment to civilian life depends ultimately upon his get-
ting a suitable job-promptly and without unnecessary shopping around.
All employers, as well as the agencies of Government, share respon-
sibility for seeing to it that the veteran's and displaced war worker's
search for employment is not made unnecessarily burdensome.
Of all the Federal agencies concerned with the veteran's problems,
the USES has the primary responsibility for expediting his employment.
Furthermore, it is the only agency of the Government which has the fa-
cilities to speed up the veteran's and displaced war worker's reemploy-
ment. It can eliminate wasteful and unnecessary job hunting. It pro-
vides information about and placement on jobs in the home town or
across the country. It is a vital reconversion tool.
But the USES cannot create jobs. That is the function of private em-
ployers. The USES can play its vital role in speeding the readjustment
of the veteran and the displaced war worker only if employers through-
'out the Nation list their job openings with local offices of the USES.
Such action is doubly advantageous. It helps job seekers everywhere
,in the country to apply for the best available job with a minimum effort;
Sand it helps employers everywhere in the country to interview and
employ persons best qualified to fill their job openings.
In the interest of expediting the reemployment process, I urge all
'; employers everywhere to list their job openings with the USES *

LABOR MARKET INFORMATION is used as a basis
for placement and employment counseling of workers. It is
used by schools and colleges in planning vocational programs,
by employers in determining location of plant facilities, and
by labor organizations in determining apprenticeship ratios and
other policies. It is also used by civic planning committees in
developing programs to achieve higher levels of employment
and for community expansion.
Labor market information is a primary USES responsibility
in practically every community.

O0 USES Cooperation
with COMMUNITY GROUPS
YOUR LOCAL USES OFFICE is a community institution--the
community employment center. It not only brings the worker and the
employer together but is of value to the entire community. Some of
the advantages grow out of occupational adjustment of workers and
personnel assistance to employers. Others grow out of the flow of
USES labor market reports showing local employment trends and labor
requirements. These reports are useful in facilitating introduction of
new industries or in the training of workers to meet expanding require-
ments of local industries, trades, and services.
USES WORKS with civic planning committees, schools, welfare
agencies, and employer and labor organizations in the dove-tailing of
employment and in meeting seasonal demand for workers. The method
of community cooperation varies. In some communities advisory corn-
up specifically to facilitate USES participation in community problems
often used for the purpose of providing job applicants with information
concerning industries, skills, trades, and services.
USES and Today's
ARMED FORCE SEPARATIONS'
V_ J--- AND I-AFTER
TO FIND JOBS for workers-quickly and efficiently-is a basic
USES function. It is more important today than ever before. The
millions of demobilized servicemen, added to millions who entered the
labor market during the war, have resulted in an increase in the civil-
ian labor force. After an initial drop following VJ-Day, employment
:steadied and then began to move upward. -But unemployment likewise
has been increasing.
Behind the scenes there is the human drama of the shift from war to
.:eace-the displacement of workers, returning veterans claiming jobs,
returning veterans without jobs to claim, lay-offs due to plant reconver-
sion, and the movement of thousands of Americans from one part of
f|the country to another.
S The day-to-day task of USES under these conditions is much greater
'than the actual levels of employment and unemployment indicate.
