Opportunities for Action: Traditionally Marginalized Populations and the Economic Crisis
Tate, Kevin A.; Kathleen M. Fallon; Casquarelli, Elaine J.; Marks, Laura Reid
Professional Counselor, v4 n4 p285-302 2014
This study investigated the career and work life challenges faced by traditionally marginalized populations (e.g., women; historically oppressed racial/ethnic groups; people who identify as lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual and/or queer; immigrants; individuals with mental or physical disabilities; older individuals; and those of lower socioeconomic status) in the United States during the troubled and lagging economy that began with the economic crisis in 2008. Further, this study was designed to explore action steps that could be used to address these challenges. The results of this study suggested that although marginalized populations face many significant challenges, there are actions that career development professionals can take in the near future to address these challenges. Implications for practice, training, theory, research, social justice and advocacy are provided.
