Encounters with Danger: Social Workers in the Ghetto
Mayer, John E.; Rosenblatt, Aaron
Sociology of Work and Occupations, 2, 3, 227-45, Aug 75
The paper describes some of the sociopsychological and structural influences which induced and later enabled a group of social workers to expose themselves to physical harm in dangerous ghetto areas; it considers the question of how organizations ensure that undersireable positions are filled, concluding that prestige is an important inducement.
