Black, White, and Latino/A Bosses

How the Composition of the Authority Structure Mediates Perceptions of Privilege and the Experience of Subordination

(p.139) Chapter 6 Black, White, and Latino/A Bosses
On the Line

Vanesa Ribas

University of California Press

This chapter examines how the ethnoracial composition of the authority structure in a department—its management and supervisors—affect workers’ perceptions of working conditions. Differences between African American and Latino workers’ perceptions are explored. For Latinos, an African American–dominated authority structure compounds their sense of grievance and disadvantage relative to African American workers, sometimes leading to expressions of racialized resistance.

Keywords:   management, supervisors, ethnoracial composition, resistance
