The ethnic pay gap

Bank of England chief economist Andy Haldane said, “The ethnicity pay gap problem in the UK is every bit as acute as the gender pay gap problem.”

Ethnic minorities in the UK earn around 10 per cent less than white workers, even once individual and job characteristics are taken into account. Ethnic minorities earn less, ranging from 20 per cent less for people of Bangladeshi origin to 6 per cent less for workers of a Chinese background.
