ABSTRACT
The article presents information on several recent developments dealing with labor laws in the United States. Recently three, new minority hiring plans in the area of construction have been imposed by the U.S. Labor Department, bringing the total of these type of plans to five. The new plans cover the cities and areas of Seattle, Atlanta and San Francisco, governing the majority of construction trades in each of the three cities. Each of the new plans, like the earlier Philadelphia and the Washington plans, has annually increasing percentage ratios for minority hiring for each of the concerned trades, spread across a period of the next several years. An employer must meet the prescribed hiring levels or else show proof of "good faith" efforts to do so. The plans are expected to increase the employment opportunities for minorities by an approximate average of 1,300 jobs over the next three to five years in each of the three new areas. The Labor Department will be making funds available for the training of previously unskilled workers. A minority worker's training hours will count towards the contractor's specific hiring goals only if the trainee is employed by the contractor during his entire training period.
