Abstract:The thesis confirmed that employment-to-population ratios for less educated black males were undermined by the cumulative effects of five functional content shift dimensions in major urban labor markets. Further, functional content shifts, especially intensified substantive complexity requirements, determined greater labor market inequity over the 1980s. Racial labor market inequity declined overall only because the effects of other measured and unmeasured factors countervailed against the negative effects of functional content shifts.
