Transcript • ness, industry and unions should be encouraged to develop training programs for the employment and promotion of women in policy-level positions and professional, managerial and technical jobs. Special attention should be given to the employment needs of minority women, especially Blacks, Hispanics, Asian Americans and Native Americans, including their placement in managerial, professional, technical and white collar jobs. English-language training and employment programs should be developed to meet the needs of working women whose primary language is not English. The Congress should amend the Veteran Preference Act of 1944 (58 Stat. 387, Chapter 287, Title V, US Code) so that veterans preference is used on a one-time- only basis for initial employment and within a three- year period after discharge from military service, except for disabled veterans. It should modify the "rule of three" so that equally or better qualified non-veterans should not be unduly discriminated against in hiring. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act should be amended to prohibit discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. The President should take into account in appointments to the National Labor Relations Board and in seeking amendments to the National Labor Relations Act of 1936 the obstacles confronting women who seek to organize in traditionally nonunionized employment sections. Unions and management should review the impact on women of all their practices and correct injustices to women. Enforcement of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Social Security Act as they apply to household workers and enforcement of the minimum wage should be improved. Federal and State governments should promote Flexitime jobs, and pro-rated benefits should be provided for part-time workers. All statistics collected by the Federal government should be gathered and analyzed so that information concerning the impact of Federal programs on women and the participation of women in the administration of Federal programs can be assessed. ¥s 13
