Minority Employees: Brick Wall and Career Progression
minority employees: It comes after the government began requiring large companies to report pay disparities between men and women, according to Toronto Star. Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May said that too often ethnic minority employees feel they're hitting a brick wall when it comes to career progression. The idea is a response to a study published last year that showed significant pay disparities between ethnic minorities and their white counterparts in Britain. HENRY NICHOLLS / AFP/GETTY IMAGES Too often ethnic minority employees feel they're hitting a brick wall when it comes to career progression, May said in a statement. The audit found that the unemployment rate for Black, Asian and other ethnic-minority people, at 8 per cent, was nearly double that of white British adults, at 4.6 per cent. The Race Disparity Audit, a survey of 24,000 workers last year, found that white British adults were much more likely to be employed and to own their own homes than people from ethnic minorities.
