Compares broad categories of incarcerees' pre-camp occupations against employment offers available for those seeking jobs as part of the resettlement program; the document provides some statistical information comparing skills and employment opportunities; then provides detailed breakdown showing numbers of people previously employed in various occupations.
The Japanese American Archival Collection documents the people, places, and daily life of Japanese Americans, primarily those who lived in the once thriving community of pre-war Florin in the Sacramento region, as well as the conditions in American incarceration camps during World War II. The approximately 7,000 original items include personal and official letters, photographs, diaries, arts and crafts, newsletters, textiles, camps artifacts, yearbooks and other publications.
