Post-War Employment Discrimination

By Albert J. Weiss

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, June 1947

The Bureau on Jewish Employment Problems of Chicago was organized in December of 1937. In general, the experience of the Bureau has demonstrated that employment discrimination is directly related to unemployment. Evidence of employment discrimination submitted in this report includes a study of current policies and practices, of employment agencies with respect to registration, referral, and placement of Jewish applicants, and an evaluation of the extent and areas of discriminatory job-orders among other areas.
