U.S. Department of Justice,

for(e!): most people who follow the agency (the EEOC)
expect the new administration to continue the pattern of previous ones,
Democratic and Republican alike, in considering it a low priority.
'Without larger budgets and greater political influence',
the new chairwoman may have as much trouble as her predecessors
in transforming the agency into a powerful force.
''There is not a huge national will to have the agency be more effective,''
said John Rowe, a district office director in Chicago
who has worked for the E.E.O.C. for nearly 30 years.
Since the agency gets little respect,
morale has chronically suffered.
Without 'the money' to
1) hire more lawyers and investigators
or to
2) buy computers,
the agency (the EEOC) fell further and further behind
in the 1980's
into much of the 1990's.
chew! chew!
