George Pratt Shultz (born 1920) served as the United States Secretary of Labor from 1969 to 1970, as the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury from 1972 to 1974, and as the U.S. Secretary of State from 1982 to 1989. Originally an economist, he has also served as a university professor and a business executive.
Shultz served as President Richard Nixon's secretary of labor from 1969 to 1970, during which time he forced Pennsylvania construction unions which refused to accept black members to admit a certain number of blacks by an enforced deadline. This marked the first use of racial quotas in the federal government.
He then became director of the Office of Management and Budget. He then became United States Secretary of the Treasury from May 1972 to May 1974. It was during this period that Shultz, along with Paul Volcker, supported the decision of the Nixon administration to end the gold standard and the Bretton Woods system.
