Today, the Assembly Select Committee on Fair Employment Practices, and the Assembly Judiciary Committee are holding a joint interim hearing on legal issues on affirmative action problems affecting women. Our purpose today, is to examine some of the problems confronted by women in employment. We will examine the areas of recruitment, hiring, mobility, the grievance procedures, and the emerging issue of collective bargaining. The committees are also very interested in examining the issue of ethnic women, and the progress they have made in equalizing their representation in the labor force.
