This chapter describes the changing patterns of ethnic disadvantage in employment in Great Britain. It discusses the increasingly differentiated experiences of Britain's minority ethnic citizens and the persistence of disadvantage relative to the white population and reviews the situation of minority ethnic groups across a range of labour-market issues, from participation rates to earnings. The findings suggest that upward occupational mobility and labour-market success do not have the same beneficial consequences for members of all groups in terms of material well-being.

Keywords:   ethnic disadvantage, employment, Great Britain, minority ethnic citizens, labour-market participation, earnings, occupational mobility, labour-market success
