The economic emergence of women by Barbara R Bergmann( Book )

In defense of affirmative action by Barbara R Bergmann( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Defense of Affirmative Action explores the issue of reverse discrimination and unfairness to white males, arguing that the ethical implications of leaving discrimination intact are far worse. Bergmann boldly confronts the issue of quotas, acknowledging that affirmative action does involve paying attention to the numbers hired by race and sex. She argues that "preferences" for blacks and women in some openings are needed in cases where prejudice or habit leads to preference for white males in all openings. She reveals the record of many of the largest companies in integrating - or failing to integrate - their workforces. Bergmann argues that it is naive or willfully dishonest to imagine that if we do away with affirmative action we will be left with a system that is sex-blind and race-blind, in which hiring and promotion are based solely on ability. Rather, continued affirmative action is needed to move us closer to a society in which merit rules

Saving our children from poverty : what the United States can learn from France by Barbara R Bergmann( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saving Our Children From Poverty compares the American aversion to national assistance programs with the French commitment to child well-being. Americans' lack of faith in the federal government, a growing resistance to taxation, and a belief that financial support encourages irresponsibility have weakened support for U.S. welfare programs. Saving Our Children From Poverty illustrates what a nation no wealthier than ours can realistically accomplish and concludes with a viable blueprint for successfully applying aspects of France's system to the United States. Its insights may help us to realize the importance of helping America's most undeserving poor

Labor market data needs relating to antidiscrimination activity by Barbara R Bergmann( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The utilization of data in combatting employment discrimination against women and minorities is reviewed in this paper. Suggestions are made for changes which would allow better use of data in formulating national policy and in enforcing the laws and executive orders against discrimination. For purposes of overall policy formation, emphasis is put on providing better information for Hispanics, and in reforming labor turnover data so that they are more revealing of the extent to which discrimination continues. Changes are suggested in the way employment and unemployment data are collected and published, in order to remove biases which minimize the problems of discriminated-against groups. With respect to data collected by the agencies charged with enforcement of anti-discrimination laws and executive orders, it is suggested that there be a shift of emphasis from the collection of data on stocks (numbers of employed) to data on flows (numbers of hires, promotions, separations) by occupation, and that such data be published by name of firm for large firms. It is also suggested that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) develop a methodology for issuing estimates of availability by race x sex x occupation, and pair up such estimates with the data by firm name suggested above.
