When Does 100-85=32?

Newsletter • volume 1 • number 1

Answer: When people look carefully at the figures reported in Workforce 2000, the landmark study conducted by the Hudson Institute and Department of Labor.

A widely quoted figure is that 85% of the net growth in the labor force from the years 1985 to 2000 will be women, minorities and immigrants. This leaves only 15% who will be white males.

Or does it? Actually, 32% will be white males, but 17% will replace those who retire or die, leaving a net new addition of 15% white males. In any case, demographics are changing dramatically and concerned employers know the score.
