Hispanic Participation in Manpower Programs in Newark, New Jersey.
New Jersey State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Focused on in this review is the extent to which Newark's Hispanics participate as clients, advisors, employees, administrators, and policymakers in city manpower programs funded through the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973 (CETA). A standard of 15% (estimated total Hispanic population in Newark) is used for measuring Hispanic representation in a number of these programs. Taken into account is the impact Newark's affirmative action plan has on minority participation in the city's manpower program. Data are presented and discussed for each of the programs reviewed. Findings indicate that, despite some improvements, Hispanics continue to be inadequately represented in practically all program agencies examined. Recommendations for increasing Hispanic staff representation to achieve a proposed goal of 10-15% Hispanic participation in the city's manpower program are made. Supplementary data and information are appended. (EB)
