For All the People...by the People: A Report on Equal Opportunity in State and Local Government Employment.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights prepared this report on the extent of equal employment opportunity for minority group members in State and local government pursuant to Public Law 85-315. 628 jurisdictions in seven Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas were surveyed since they contain substantial and varied minority group populations, are diversified in character, and are scattered throughout the Nation. All levels of State and local government were covered except part-time employment and employment in education. The major topics discussed include: patterns of minority group employment in state and local government; minority workers and public personnel systems; employment discrimination in police and fire departments; and Federal requirements for equal employment opportunity. Recommendations are made for the amelioration of marked social and racial discrimination in employment. Descriptive statistical analysis is extensively utilized. (EM)
