Do Employment Recruiters Discriminate on the Basis of Nonstandard Dialect?
Atkins, Carolyn Peluso
Journal of Employment Counseling, v30 n3 p108-18 Sep 1993
Recruiters (n=65) rated effect of specific social dialect characteristics on job interview and rated their perceptions of social dialect speakers. Results revealed that 58% of Appalachian English variables presented and 93% of Black English variables presented were considered to have negative effect on job interview. For both dialects, nonstandard grammar was judged more negatively than nonstandard pronunciations. (Author/NB)
