Carnegie UK Trust, Operation Black Vote and UCL Centre for Longitudinal Studies have published a report on Race Inequality in the Workforce: Exploring connections between work, ethnicity and mental health.
Quoting from the report:
In this report, we present new data from Next Steps, a longitudinal study of the ‘millennial generation’ in England. The work reveals persistent issues around the relationships between employment, ethnicity and mental health and underlines that there are enduring inequalities in the workforce between ethnic groups. We find that Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) young adults continue to be at a greater risk of being unemployed than White young adults and that BAME groups are more likely to be in some form of precarious work. The evidence also confirms significant links between employment status and mental health, whereby being unemployed, a shift worker or on a zero-hours contract are all associated with a significantly greater risk of having poor mental ill-health at age 25.
