Chapter 20: Labour market, work and employment segregation by race
This chapter first sketches some of the historical and global contexts of occupational segregation and racialised discrimination. Subordination by constructed racial, linguistic and religious differences did not begin with industrial capitalism, and it has not ended with ‘post-industrial’ capitalism. Racial segregation of the ‘other’ at work has a very long history, and is intimately related to social class. The chapter then reviews European-wide research conducted by the author over the past 15 years to illustrate its persistence, despite the European 2000 Racial Equality Directive as well as dozens of national-level laws outlawing it.
