"Unemployment issues in South Central Los Angeles"

May 6, 1971


Mr. Bachman, of the South Central Los Angeles Services Center, is interviewed about high unemployment in the area. He talks about the need for more entry level jobs, employers recruiting in other communities known for having a pool of semi-skilled labor and the lack of transportation in the community. Clip includes silent footage of people looking at job postings on a bulletin board and Center employees working.

Note: The KTLA newsfilm collection at UCLA consists of cut and unedited stories, outtakes and fill footage, originally shot on 16mm reversal film stock with magnetic soundtrack. Some footage, particularly material not used for broadcast, may be without sound.
