Minority Groups in New Mexico.
Lopez, Andrew
The employment problem among minority groups (whites with a Spanish surname, American Indians, and Negroes) in New Mexico is the major consideration of this study. Minority groups are defined, and charts, maps, and graphs clarify the definition. The study brings together as much socioeconomic information as possible to aid the New Mexico State Employment Service in meeting the employment needs of minority groups. Two of the key findings isolated by the study were (1) that, despite having equal education, non-whites earned less than whites in New Mexico and (2) that there were factors other than education which seemed to prevent minority group members from obtaining jobs and salaries similar to majority group members with the same educational attainment. The document also includes reviews of basic State and Federal legislation related to equal employment opportunities of minority groups. (DB)
