A STUDY OF LOCAL ROAD ADMINISTRATION AND ENGINEERING MANPOWER

STUDIES WERE CONDUCTED ON ENGINEERING MANPOWER IN CALIFORNIA COUNTY ROAD DEPARTMENTS. THE SHORTAGE OF ENGINEERS TENDS TO CONCENTRATE SUCH STUDIES ON AN IMMEDIATE MEANS OF INCREASING AVAILABILITY AND PRODUCTIVITY OF THE TECHNICAL WORKING FORCE. SPECIFIC INFORMATION IS PRESENTED ABOUT THE NUMBERS OF TECHNICAL PERSONNEL PER UNIT OF CONSTRUCTION AND ABOUT JOBS FILLED IN RELATION TO SALARIES PAID IN CALIFORNIA COUNTY ROAD DEPARTMENTS. NUMBERS OF ENGINEERING PERSONNEL ENGAGED IN WORK CONNECTED WITH CONSTRUCTION WERE COMPUTED FOR EACH OF THESE COUNTY GROUPS. THE RELATION BETWEEN JOBS OPEN AND SALARIES WAS EXAMINED. DATA DEVELOPED SHOULD HELP IN CORRECTING SALARY INEQUITIES, ESPECIALLY IN THE CASE OF INDIVIDUAL COUNTIES WHERE PRESENT SALARIES ARE FAR BELOW PREVAILING MEAN FOR SIMILAR JOB CLASSIFICATIONS IN ORGANIZATIONS OF SIMILAR SIZE.
