Jews and Banking

WASHINGTON—Women,
Blacks, Catholics and Jews
have poor chances of be-
coming top-level bank em-
ployees, according to the
Senate Banking Committee.
The committee's findings
indicate that minority
groups comprise 15.9 per-
cent of the total bank work
force, 11 percent of the gen-
eral work force, but only
5.5 percent of the officers
and managers of banks.
The committee also re-
p4rts that there are very
few Catholics or Jews hold-
ing management positions
at commercial banks, even
in areas where these
groups make up a sub-
stantial proportion of the
population.
