|Title:||West Indian Teachers and Nurses in Ontario, Canada: A Study of Migration Patterns|
|Authors:||Cole, Lilian Joyce|
|Advisor:||Blumstock, Robert E.|
|Abstract:||<p>In rigidly structured societies where entry into certain occupations and/or social strata are blocked, migration provides the channels of upward mobility. The study shows how West Indians of lower status origins use the professions - teaching and nursing - to achieve this mobility. The evidence also suggests a positive relationship between migration and levels of aspiration, career patterns, and anomie.</p>|
