The Negro in the Furniture Industry. The Racial Policies of American Industry Series.
Fulmer, William E.
This is the twenty-eighth of a series of studies conducted to determine variances in industrial employment practices of Negroes and to develop appropriate hiring policies. This particular study sought to examine current racial employment policies in the furniture industry within the context of the industry's structure and history. Interviews with various furniture manufacturers in the U. S.,census reports, and information obtained from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission provided the data. As an industry highly concentrated in the South, the furniture industry racial employment policies appear to be more affected by labor market conditions than by any other factor. (Author/SN)
