A letter from President Reagan to Moorhead concerning his letter on unemployment. Reagan thanks Moorhead, as his letter was "instrumental in the development of the Employment Act of 1983" He also asked for Moorhead's support in getting the Job Training Partnership Act through congress. He also mentions proposals that Moorhead made concerning unemployment and mentions using some of the ideas in his State of the Union address, and the creation of a Enterprise Zone legislation that will create new incentives for job creation including help for the young people. Reagan concludes the letter saying "A worker who has lost his job or cannot find work often suffers a worse tragedy than the loss of a home or personal bankruptcy. The loss of dignity and self-respect is the greatest evil the unemployed are forced to endure." This letter is on White House stationary.
