France – Discrimination is keeping the children of immigrants at the bottom report finds

Discrimination is keeping the children of immigrants at the bottom of France’s economic pile, a report advised Prime Minister Manuel Valls this weekend. Young men of sub-Saharan African origin face the biggest obstacles in finding jobs, ahead of a ministers’ meeting on tackling inequality.France

The report does not blame discrimination exclusively, pointing to training, family background and place of residence as other factors that affect employment prospects.

Lack of useful contacts and language skills may also have some impact, it finds, but “part can also be attributed to discriminatory behaviour”.

“A quarter of immigrants and descendants of immigrants declared that they have experienced discrimination over the last five years, nearly half of those of Sub-Saharan African origin, the main criterion of discrimination felt to be skin colour,” the study says.
