I am apprehensive about getting into the industry because I have heard that there is a lot of bias from unions and contractors against women and minorities. Typically how many persons of color and women get accepted into your local?

Unions fight for equal rights for minorities and women, such as equal pay and benefits for work. There are plenty of statistics available from the Department of Labor's website on the demographics of minorities in the electrical industry, both union and non-union.
