I hold a master's degree and went there during a difficult time of job hunting hoping to find a permanent job. I took the entry test and passed. Yet, my qualifications were never considered. The temps had been told they would be doing clerical work. Only the white temps moved on to clerical work. The blacks were discontinued after the move."
