Canada's Colour Coded Labour Market: The Gap for Racialized Workers

Summary: 

This report draws on 2006 Census data to compare work and income trends among racialized and non-racialized Canadians. The authors find that the work racialized Canadians are able to attain is more likely to be insecure, temporary and low paying, and that despite an increasingly diverse population, a colour code is firmly in place.
