Abstract:
Many people from ethnic minorities experience disadvantage in the labour market in comparison to the white population. In general, they have lower employmen rates, suffer higher levels of unemployment, longer periods of unemployment, occupational and industrial segregation and lower earnings. However, different groups experience different levels of disadvantage. Whilst African Asians and Chinese experience broad parity with the white population, Indians and Caribbeans experience some disadvantage and Pakistanis and Bangladeshis experience 'severe' disadvantage. This thesis reports upon research based on an in-depth case study in Bristol and evaluates the positive action training programme delivered by an ethnic minority training provider.
