In surveying the industrial scene one becomes impressed with the economic deprivat1on of the American Negro. In most cases, Negroes find their pay checks substantially smaller than those or their white counterparts. Negroes are usually the first to be released during production cut backs regardless of their productivity. It is to this problem that the paper directs its attention. Chapter I introduces the problem in some depth and then hypothesizes a number of causes. Herein a causation model is used to illustrate how a series or factor responses may initiate the problem. The remainder or the thesis attempts to establish the relationships or the causation model. The final chapter, Chapter VI, summarizes the material covered and then suggests how the information might be useful.
