GIANT STEPS TAKEN IN MINORITY HIRING IN SAN FRANCISCO
Published December 4, 1997
On the eve of groundbreaking for their new Pac Bell Ballpark, the MLB Giants announced a minority hiring and job program yesterday which includes a proposal to pay "apprenticeship costs for disadvantaged young people who go into construction trades," according to Ramon McLeod of the S.F. CHRONICLE. Giants VP Larry Baer also said that the team is setting aside 20% of the project work for minority- owned businesses and 10% for female-owned businesses. The ballpark project is expected to create "more than" 2,500 construction jobs. Under the minority hiring plan, the club will pay for the "apprenticeship costs of 100 poor people who will enter job training programs" aimed at getting them jobs on the ballpark project (S.F. CHRONICLE, 12/4).
