Abstract : The 'Commercial' seagoing work force of the U. S. merchant marine is likely to encounter shortages in all seven licensed and unlicensed categories shortly because it is characterized by (a) advanced and increasing average age; (b) high net attrition rates, featuring the loss of many of its younger men within the first two years of their entry into the work force; and (c) the difficulty experienced by unskilled unlicensed seamen in obtaining the requisite employment for advancement to the skilled ratings.
