Abstract:
Despite many federal efforts to provide equal employment opportunities regardless of race, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1991, economic outcomes for African Americans persistently lag behind those of whites in the United States. This fact sheet examines data from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to determine whether African Americans were uniquely affected by the 1990-91 recession and whether the emphasis on overall progress in minority employment has caused many employers to overlook the specific employment situation of African Americans. GAO compares (1) the length of time displaced African American workers were unemployed with unemployment spells for displaced workers of other racial groups and (2) the reemployment wages of displaced African Americans with those of displaced whites and Hispanics. In addition, GAO examined these factors for the years 1982 to 1991, allowing GAO to see how they varied during an entire business cycle.
