Are BAME workers being penalised in the workplace?

This week the Resolution Foundation published a report which explores pay penalties among the UK’s ethnic minorities.

The report shows that between 1996-97 and 2016-17 the employment rate among black and Pakistani/Bangladeshi men grew by over a quarter, while it doubled among Pakistani/Bangladeshi women.

But in spite of this progress, large pay gaps remain. The average hourly pay gap between white men and Indian women was 14 per cent in 2016-17; between white men and black men it was 19 per cent.

BBC Money talk to Creative Access staff and interns about their thoughts on the subject. You can see the report here.
