A word of caution is warranted in the interpretation of our results. Our findings do not indicate that nonunion low- and mediumskill blacks are the only blacks who experience earnings discrimination. Indeed, we find evidence of racial earnings disparity for almost all groups of blacks (by skill level and union status). However, our findings provide original evidence that medium- and low-skill, nonunion blacks are the victims of racial wage disparity that can be directly attributed to employers’ increased latitude to discriminate in noncompetitive markets.

However, the absence of unionization controls is particularly problematic given Peoples’ findings. In their analysis of employment discrimination in the trucking industry, Heywood and Peoples (1994) provide a theoretical model suggesting that the skill level of industry workers determines if discrimination results in the underrepresentation of blacks and increased racial earnings disparities. Consider two extremes. In a noncompetitive industry, if workers have low skills and so elastic supply to the industry, discrimination results in the underrepresentation of blacks while having no affect on the racial wage gap in the industry.

Again, this group’s high skill and limited supply increases its market wage (assuming a separate demand for black workers) and reduces wage gaps created by discriminatory employers in noncompetitive industries.
