"Last Hired, First Fired", Informal Hearing Before the United States Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, D.C.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
This document is based on a discussion of a draft document which dealt with the issue of "last hired and first fired". Persons both inside and outside the government contributed to the hearing. One of the issues which was repeatedly brought up was that of the current status of the American economy and its effect upon the unemployment problem. Other issues discussed included seniority, layoffs, underemployment, and occupational segregation. Generally, the draft document was well received with some speakers praising it because it focused its attention on how to deal with unemployment as it affects a broad spectrum of the population. It was suggested that the document be written clearly in order that it reach as many people as possible. It was also suggested that each employment situation be considered individually, and that the government play a strong role since volunteer efforts usually do not work. (Author/AM)
