Who Gets the Good Jobs?: Combatting Race and Gender Disparities

by Robert Cherry
 
Cherry (economics, CUNY, Brooklyn College) offers an analysis of capitalism, the labor market, and racial and gender inequalities that establishes why the advances made as a result of civil rights legislation have been both substantial and also limited, and which public policies are helpful and which aren't in efforts to reduce earnings and employment inequities.

Overview

Cherry (economics, CUNY, Brooklyn College) offers an analysis of capitalism, the labor market, and racial and gender inequalities that establishes why the advances made as a result of civil rights legislation have been both substantial and also limited, and which public policies are helpful and which aren't in efforts to reduce earnings and employment inequities. Cherry's overview looks at the labor-market experience of various groups of workers, traces the political and economic forces that have influenced labor-market practices, and demonstrates the need for more balanced "third way" policies that are less ideological and more pragmatic.
