All in my Head? The Play of Exclusion and Discrimination in the Labor Market

All in my Head? The Play of Exclusion and Discrimination in the Labor Market Labor market discrimination is very difficult to pinpoint, even more difficult to measure and almost impossible to “prove”. This paper reviews the literature and makes two main contributions: first, it builds a four-fold typology to think about discrimination — overt or covert; conscious or unconscious; legal or illegal and real or perceived. Second, it identifies screens and filters — devices through which discrimination plays out in the labor market. Unless more empirical studies identify the play of discrimination and exclusion, subordinate groups may well be told that discrimination is actually in their heads — that they are imagining it. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of International Commerce, Economics and Policy World Scientific Publishing Company

Abstract

Labor market discrimination is very difficult to pinpoint, even more difficult to measure and almost impossible to “prove”. This paper reviews the literature and makes two main contributions: first, it builds a four-fold typology to think about discrimination — overt or covert; conscious or unconscious; legal or illegal and real or perceived. Second, it identifies screens and filters — devices through which discrimination plays out in the labor market. Unless more empirical studies identify the play of discrimination and exclusion, subordinate groups may well be told that discrimination is actually in their heads — that they are imagining it.
