December 1984 | James C. Robinson
Public policies aimed at reducing occupational injury and illness are uncoordinated-and often at odds-with those aimed at reducing racial inequality in employment. Several dimensions of discrimination and job quality are examined empirically; the average black worker is at a 37 to 52 percent greater health risk than is the average white worker. Health policy and industrial relations policy must be coordinated if equality is to be achieved.
