Proposal to the United States Department of Labor for leadership training in the Work Incentive Program (WIN) and correspondence and statements concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s positions on labor laws and policy. The WIN proposal requests funding for training for local associations interested in participating in the program. It suggests utilizing the strengths of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and its associations to establish a relationship with the WIN program and through that relationship and participation contribute to the goals and purposes of WIN. Following this proposal are official position statements and letters to politicians concerning labor in the United States. These address proposed changes to child labor standards and legislation concerning migrant farm workers. Also included are several letters discussing the YWCA of the U.S.A.'s policies on using union labor and contractors.
