The Problem of the Blue-Collar Worker.
Rosow, Jerome M.
This memorandum to the Secretary of Labor from the Assistant Secretary for Policy, Evaluation, and Research describes the effects of our changing society upon the socioeconomic status of blue-collar workers. Economic problems face both black and white workers when their earnings peak while expenses continue to rise, both from inflation and from increasing family responsibilities. These economic problems are compounded by lack of status and a feeling of being forgotten among many of the lower middle class. Government action is recommended in the areas of skill upgrading, income, living expenses, and social issues such as low status. (BH)
