There are countless opportunities for employing veterans in Oregon businesses and
industries, through the splendid program of on-the-iob training provided by the federal
government and functioning in Oregon through the department of vocational education
and the state apprenticeship council. ln this program, veterans' starting wages are
augmented by subsistence allowances from the government under the GI bill of rights
in order to insure a fair standard of living during the learning period.
Selective service and employment service figures indicate that from 50 to 80 per-
cent of Oregon's veterans went into the armed forces without having held pre-war iobs
requiring skills. It is these men who need training in occupations, and it is believed that
the best way to get these men into employment is through on-the-iob training. Either
of two avenues is open: ill in apprenticable trades or i2J in occupations where skills
can be taught under the "Vocational Training Memorandum." ln Oregon these two
programs are virtually the same, and are supervised through the local apprentice
It must be understood, of course, that government funds provided under this pro-
gram are not intended as a dole for the veteran nor as a means whereby the employer
gets cheap labor at government expense. These funds are intended to train the veteran
for his own future security as well as to provide industry with skilled men. Any veteran-
employer contract signed for on-the-iob training entails responsibilities for both. The
chief requirements for the employer, is that he agree to train the man during his work-
ing hours. For the veteran, he must agree to accept this training and in addition, to
improve himself through study of subiects relative to his job.
The Veterans Administration provides funds under the amended GI bill of rights
iPublic Law 3461 for the payment of S65 a month maximum for single men and S90 a
month for veterans with dependents. These allotments are made to enable the veteran
accept employment which will lead to full qualifications as a skilled worker. ln no
case will he be allowed to receive the prevailing scale for iourneymen in his occupation.
For disabled veterans, a vocational rehabilitation program fPublic Law l6l is set
up to provide iob trainees with a starting minimum subsistence allowance of S65 a month
for single veterans and S90 a month for veterans with dependents, in addition to the
basic pension or retirement pay as a result of disability. The pension has nothing to do
with the subsistence allowance, and will remain constant, so long as the veteran's con-
dition of disability does not change.
The length of time the veteran receives the federal allotment under the GI bill is
determined by his length of actual service. If he served 90 days or more in the armed
forces since Sept. l6, 1940 for discharged for physical disability if less than 90 daysj,
and was discharged under conditions other than dishonorable, he is automatically en-
titled to one year of training allotments. Then, for every month spent in service he is
entitled to one month of training. The maximum is four years.
