Equal Opportunity in Employment
Bullock, Paul
This book focuses on discrimination in employment, defined as the denial of equal opportunity in the labor market to qualified persons on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, or any other factor not related to their individual qualifications for work. The average nonwhite college graduate can expect to earn less during his lifetime than the white who has never gone beyond elementary school. Traditional patterns of discrimination have caused counselors and parents to discourage minority group youngsters from choosing "closed" occupations, and it is important that these young people be informed of opportunities and trained to take advantage of them. This pamphlet discusses significant developments affecting equal employment opportunities since 1960 at the federal and state level, and special studies and surveys, using current statistical and factual information. The origin and nature of merit employment by private employers, and government and private techniques used to implement it are described. Wherever management has established a firm policy of merit employment, the results have almost invariably been remedial and beneficial. (CH)
