Race-Based Employment Discrimination: What African Americans Should Know
Most Americans work every day. Jobs help us pay our bills, feed our families, and provide us with a sense of security. While nearly everyone must work, getting and keeping work is particularly important for African Americans. Because of the historical wealth gap, African Americans cannot rely on other sources of wealth to meet their needs. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that African Americans are more likely than members of other races to work two or more jobs at the same time.
