The hypothesis for studying the hiring practices at the Port of Portland was simply that hiring practices have historically discriminated against non-whites through negative racial attitudes that are destructive and inappropriate if equal employment is to be practiced. The objective of this study was to provide the Port with information which could lead to the adjustment of hiring procedures which would be geared toward effective recruitment and hiring of minority individuals.
