White Male Professionals

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Economist and former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich worries about too
much of the Obama stimulus going to white males in the construction sector.

?If there aren?t enough skilled professionals to do the jobs involving new
technologies, the stimulus will just increase the wages of the professionals
who already have the right skills rather than generate many new jobs in
these fields. And if construction jobs go mainly to white males who already
dominate the construction trades, many people who need jobs the most --
women, minorities, and the poor and long-term unemployed -- will be shut
out,? Reich said.

Speechless.
