Antidiscrimination policy with culturally biased testing
This paper explores the implications of culturally biased testing for the employment decisions of firms. Only the workers know whether they can do the job or not so firms test them. Wages are made contingent on the test results which are public information. The threshold result for hiring corresponds to the minimum wage acceptable to qualified workers. Assuming the test is less able to discern the ability of minority workers, the paper looks at the implications for antidiscrimination employment and wage policies
