From the Paper:

"If I were in top management of Wards Cove and any other cannery I would take some steps during the off-season (the slow season or when salmon could not be legally caught) to provide some sort of training for local or nearby workers who have shown the ability to be promoted into non-cannery jobs. There certainly might be both regional, community, not to mention financial benefits for the canneries."
"Unfortunately, this seasonal low-skill employer can count on a rather large supply of cannery workers, since this part of the country now has a rather high unemployment rate. So, there might be no real reason to implement a local training and upgrading of jobs program. Nevertheless, it might be worth an effort and close the wide gulf that now exists with the preferential treatment cannery workers feel their non-cannery worker fellow employees are receiving."
