The Puerto Rican and Public Employment in New York State. A Report.
New York State Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, New York.
The five-session open meeting of the New York State Advisory committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in November 1971 in Rochester, Buffalo, and Albany was part of an overall Commission project dealing with problems confronting Puerto Ricans and other Spanish--speaking persons in the eastern part of the U.S. The Rochester and Buffalo hearings of the New York State Advisory Committee focused on the employment of Puerto Rican and other Spanish-surnamed persons in city and county government. Witnesses who appeared before the New York Committee in Rochester and Buffalo included officials from both city and county Civil Service Commissions and from selected city and county agencies, as well as members of the Puerto Rican communities in Rochester, Monroe County, Buffalo, and Erie County. Much data and hundreds of exhibits were collected both prior to, during and after the hearings. This material, as well as tapes of the hearings in the three localities, are available at the Northeastern Regional Office of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights in New York City. In the interest of brevity, however, this reported attempts to summarize this material in the form of findings and recommendations. (Author/JM)
