The Disadvantaged Worker: Readings in Developing Minority Manpower.
Zimpel, Lloyd, Ed.
This document examines the efforts made by American business to make employment opportunities available to the disadvantaged minority worker. Ten major areas are discussed, including the following: changing social attitudes, Negro work attitudes, patterns for disadvantaged programs, management views of hard-core hiring, testing the disadvantaged, training the unemployed, company experience with the disadvantaged, the role of the unions, upgrading and job mobility, and job programs during business slowdowns. Forty readings are included. The point of this collection is to bring together some of the lessons learned over the past few years about how best to fit the disadvantaged jobless into the country's employment pattern. (CK)
