WHITE COLLAR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR MINORITIES IN NEW YORK CITY. RESEARCH REPORT.
HIESTAND, DALE L.
THIS REPORT PROVIDES FACTUAL BACKGROUND ON WHITE-COLLAR EMPLOYMENT PATTERNS FOR MINORITIES AND OTHERS, PARTICULARLY NEGROES AND PUERTO RICANS, IN THE NEW YORK CITY AREA. SPECIAL ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THE EMPLOYMENT OF WOMEN, REGARDLESS OF MINORITY GROUP MEMBERSHIP. PRINCIPAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION ARE THE 1960 CENSUS OF POPULATION AND THE 1966 EMPLOYER SURVEY BY THE EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION. RESULTS INDICATE THAT NEGROES AND PUERTO RICANS HAVE GAINED A PLACE IN CLERICAL AND TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONS. MINORITY WOMEN FARED BETTER THAN MINORITY MEN. HOWEVER, WOMEN AS A GROUP WERE UNDERREPRESENTED IN ALL FIELDS ABOVE THE CLERICAL LEVEL IN PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT. THE NEED FOR EXPANDED MINORITY EMPLOYMENT IN WHITE-COLLAR OCCUPATIONS IS DISCUSSED. PARTICULAR EMPHASIS IS GIVEN TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO INCREASE NEGRO AND PUERTO RICAN EMPLOYMENT AS MANAGERS, OFFICIALS, AND SALESMEN. (AF)
