Description:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) recently posted a new publication online, with sections downloadable as .pdf files. The Report on the American Workforce, chronicles key events for American workers during the 20th century. This report is information-rich and interesting. Chapter one covers important changes in the demographics of the workforce due to internal migration and immigration. Chapter two follows the evolution of compensation practices, while Chapter three discusses the structural evolution of the economy and development of occupational and industrial classification systems. The report concludes from statistics that the American workforce was much better off at the end of the 20th century than at the beginning. The previous Report on the American Workforce, from 1999, was reviewed in the November 16, 1999 Scout Report for Social Science and Humanities.
