President Obama made an iron-clad promise to AsAms that he
"issue a directive to the Labor Department asking it to focus
on enforcing Exec. Order 11246 on behalf of Asian Americans."
The above is valid provided that there is
"statistical data strongly suggesting discriminatory practices
against AsAms in workplaces today"
A copy of Pres. Obama's signed commitment is attached at the end.
What Statistical Evidence Does 80-20 Have?
80-20 has data to show that
"Asian Americans have the least opportunity to enter
management (See Chart I below), despite having the highest
educational attainment. (See Chart II). We also have the slowest
rate of progress toward equal opportunity (See Chart III)."
Such data & more have been provided to the Dept of Labor, DOL, since
a month ago. Indeed, earlier in 2006, 80-20 bought a full page ad in
Washington Post to publicize these data.
Be sure to focus on the small pillboxes above each of the bars in chart III. A
yellow/black pillbox denotes respectively the lengthening/shortening in each bar
from 1996 to 2001. Note that the increases in AsAm bars are only about ½
the sizes of those for women and Hispanics, although our bars are by far the
shortest. At this rate of progress, it'll take 75 years or 3 more generations,
before Asian Americans will enjoy equal opportunity. Are you OUTRAGED? .
Are WE to continue being patient or timid? Or are WE to begin a
determined NATIONWIDE bid for equal opportunity?
