British Pakistanis more likely to be jobless claims UK ‘race audit’

UK government recently released a report that has laid bare the extent of racial disparity existing in the country.
The study was conducted right after Britons voted to exit European Union amid the rise of hate crimes and racism against minorities within the country, according to Al Jazeera.

Fewer minorities in work

The report showed that out of 65 million people in Britain, almost 30 million are employed.Pakistanis, Bangladeshi and black Britons are more than twice likely to be out of jobs than white people.

People with Pakistani or Bangladeshi heritage were in the list of those who were least likely to have a job, with only 54 per cent at work.The report indicated that race also determined the income levels.

Half as many white British employees have low income, as compared to Asian and black workers.

Racial profiling by police

British police were more likely to stop and search a non-white Briton. Black people were six times more likely to be stopped and searched than white people.

Minorities were more frequently the victims of crime and report a greater fear of it.
