Title :
  Measuring the Effect of Public Labor Exchange (PLX) Referrals and Placements in Washington and Oregon
Release Date :
Abstract :
  This report describes the analyses of the effects of direct placement services provided by public labor exchanges (PLXs) to job seekers in the states of Washington and Oregon from 1987 to 1998. A nationwide system of state-Federal PLXs was created following passage of the Wagner-Peyser Act in 1933. The goal was to determine their value and develop procedures that the U.S. Department of Labor could routinely use to provide meaningful feedback to PLX program operators and state and Federal policymakers.
