Discrimination in Employment: An Appraisal of the Research. Policy Papers in Human Resources and Industrial Relations 16.
Hiestand, Dale L.
This paper appraises some completed and current research into discrimination in employment and indicates directions and questions for future research. Most research views discrimination as an economic waste and a social and moral evil, and so should be appraised in the light of the impact that it may have on eliminating or reducing discrimination. Included in the paper are discussions of the nature and types of discrimination, differential patterns in employment, equal opportunity through law, and priorities in research. Highest research priority should be given to analyzing the implications for minorities of the labor market structure and operations. Equally important should be an analysis of efforts to transcend market and economic processes by direct pressure, demonstrations, boycotts, and the like. A third area of highest priority in research into employment discrimination is the effect of the emerging minority middle class. (MF)
