Editors' Note: As a result of the recent federal welfare reform legislation, welfare recipients are being forced to find jobs. At the same time, the strong growth of the economy is leaving many Americans behind. Planners need to consider new ways to connect unemployed and underemployed people to jobs. The editors of Carolina Planning hosted a forum to discuss how people in North Carolina are dealing with these issues. We brought together a panel that includes varied perspectives, from private training programs to community development corporations to state agencies. The text of this article is an edited version of the discussion, which took place at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill on November 10, 1997.
