Baldwin, Marjorie L.; Johnson, William G.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v49 n2 p302-16 Jan 1996
Data from the 1984 Survey of Income and Program Participation showed that 62% of differences in wages offered to black and white men and 67% of differences in observed wages were not due to productivity differences. Wage discrimination reduced the relative employment rate of black men from 89% to 82% of white men's rate. (SK)
