Minorities Must Adjust

Minorities Must Adjust

Having taken advantage of the employment opportunities of the industrial system, migrant Maoris have had to adjust to a pattern of regular employment the year round because of a complex commitment to mortgages, rates and hire purchase lock the Maori migrant into the industrial system. Adjustment to independent family life, the cash nexus, regular employment in industry and an adjustment to an urban concept of time are the immutable demands of industrial society. All minorities and social classes the world over must accept these conditions of urban existence. They comprise the common culture of industrial society that transcend class and minoritygroup boundaries.
