BAME graduates '2.5 times more likely to be jobless than white peers'


Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) workers with degrees are two and half times more likely to be unemployed than their white peers, according the TUC. Using official figures, the TUC found that at every level of education, jobless rates were much higher for BAME workers. It is calling on the government to urgently develop a race equality plan, with clear targets and proper funding. Official statistics show the unemployment rate for white workers with degrees is 2.3% but for their BAME counterparts the figure is 5.9%, according the TUC’s analysis, which is published to mark the beginning of its annual black workers’ conference.
