Discussion of Papers by S.P. Goldberg and George Brager

By Herman L. Kaplow

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1951

Responding to S.P. Goldberg's "Pension Plans for Jewish Communal Agencies" and George Brager's "Salary Trends and General Security Problems of the Jewish Social Worker," which appear consecutively before this article in this issue, the author agrees that while social work salaries have been improving, they remain woefully low. He argues that only robust collective action (unionization) can establish a reasonable salary floor and pension system for social work and Jewish communal employees, illustrating his point with examples from the auto industry.
