                      shops in the Javits-Wagner-O'Day program should continue and
                      expand their efforts to serve as models of affirmative action by
                      hiring qualified blind and severely handicapped persons for all
                      positions in the work force for which they are qualified, including

                      cies designated by the Committee under the Javits-Wagner-O'Day
                      Act should also continue and expand their efforts to serve as
                      models of affirmative action in hiring qualified blind and severely
                      handicapped persons for all positions, including management and
                      supervisory positions; and
