HAVE BLACKS MADE PROGRESS IN THE JOB MARKET?

CBS reported this morning, 50 years ago 50% of blacks lived in proverity; 50 years later than number still exists?

How far has equality really changed in 50 years?

  1. I am not saying that this is not true but, I don’t know how it can be? Around 1999 all major companies put a huge focus on hiring blacks! I was given no choice with one of the companies that I managed for. We were told that we were to hire blacks or we would lose our jobs it was that simple. We were even required to spend a certain amount time “on the streets” recruiting blacks. The other company that I managed for had the same focus in place when I went to work for them. I opened one new location and was told that I had to hire at least 40% blacks and that this figure was not negotiable. I got 65% blacks to start with. With these major companies doing this the job market for blacks just has to have improved!
