Black, Asian and minority ethnic workers are more likely to be in insecure work, finds TUC

Black, Asian and minority ethnic workers (BAME) are over a third more likely than white workers to be stuck in temporary or zero-hours work, according to a new report released by the TUC.

The study found that 1 in 13 BAME employees are in insecure jobs, compared to 1 in 20 white employees.

There are over three million BAME employees in the UK, of whom nearly a quarter of a million are in zero-hours or temporary work.

Black workers in particular face insecurity at work, and are more than twice as likely as white workers to be in temporary and zero-hours work. 1 in 8 black workers are in these forms of work, compared to 1 in 20 for white workers.
