Discriminatory Employment of Asian Americans; Private Industry in the San Francisco-Oakland SMSA.
Cabezas, Amado Y.; Yee, Harold T.
The study reported on in this document investigates discriminatory employment victimizing Asian Americans in the private sector in the San Francisco, California, Bay Area. The analytical framework utilized is described in detail. Findings are presented in both statistical and discussion form, and are broken down by industry. Disparities in specific employment patterns are outlined for (1) manufacturing industries, (2) transportation, communication, and public utilities, (3) trade, (4) finance, insurance, and real estate, and (5) service industries. Based on the statistical analysis presented, it is concluded that large classes of Asian workers are victimized by discriminatory employment patterns, with this group disproportionately concentrated in the low wage, non-unionized industries in the San Francisco/Oakland area. It is recommended that a concerted effort be undertaken to correct this situation, since a laissez faire economic and employment policy cannot be anticipated to succeed in correcting discriminatory employment patterns. Appendices to the report include (1) detailed statistical results by sex, occupation, and industry, and (2) a discussion of employment discrimination theories. (GC)
