New technologies--such as computers, robots, and automated banking machines--create a "two-tiered workforce" of high-paying technical jobs and low-paying unskilled jobs, according to a new study by the National Academy of Sciences.

The two-year study found that minorities and less educated workers are being squeezed out of relatively high-paying jobs.

Copies of "Technology and Employment" are available for $19.95 each from the National Academy Press, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C., 20418.--rrw
