The Paradox of Lessening Racial Inequality and Joblessness Among Black Youth: Enrollment, Enlistment, and Employment, 1964-1981.
Mare, Robert D.; Winship, Christopher
American Sociological Review, v49 n1 p39-55 Feb 1984
Reduced socioeconomic disparities between Blacks and Whites have been accompanied by increased disparity in percentage employed because of (1) substitution of schooling and military service for employment by young Blacks; (2) reduced work experience and disrupted employment for Blacks because of later average age leaving school and armed forces; and (3) "creaming" of nonenlisted, out-of-school Blacks.
