Abstract

Ethnic minorities fare less well on average in the labour market than their white counterparts. Wouter Zwysen, Valentina Di Stasio, and Anthony Heath connect results from two UK-based field experiments to show the relation between hiring discrimination and labour market penalties, for several ethnic minority groups. Higher hiring discrimination is indeed associated with worse ethnic employment penalties, but similarly discriminated against groups do not necessarily face the same ethnic penalties.
