-  Summary of audio segment: TC asks whether certain national Spanish speaking groups take certain directions occupationally in this country, or in Paterson in particular. MC says the Dominicans are the specialists in the neighborhood grocery store business, they dominate in that market, with the exception of the Arab population who are in that position in South Paterson. MC says a lot of people wound up here because of the factories, and though they're gone from Paterson now, there are still a lot of factories in the surrounding towns, and in the suburbs.
