Manpower Utilization in Tidewater-Hampton Roads, Virginia.
Norfolk State Coll., VA.
Differences in underemployment, defined as employment below one's actual or potential skill level, were investigated for a stratified random sample of 602 individuals representing an estimated labor force of 410,074 in the Tidewater area. Data were obtained by questionnaire and were analyzed according to occupational level, job attitudes, job promotion, and occupational aspiration. It was found that the present occupational level was significantly affected by race and/or sex. Promotions definitely favored males over females and slightly favored white males over Negro males. Within the total sample, job satisfaction varied according to age and race. Sex differences for job satisfaction existed among white workers only. A bibliography and the questionnaire used in this study are appended. (CH)
