Wellesley Institute and Canadian Centre for Policy Alternative’s Canada’s Colour-Coded Labour Market shows that racialized men are more likely to be unemployed than non-racialized men – and the situation is worse for racialized women. For those who are working, there is a major pay gap: Racialized Canadians earn 81.4 cents for every dollar earned by non-racialized Canadians.
The work that racialized workers are able to attain is much more likely to be insecure, temporary and low paying. For example, racialized Canadians are over-represented in a range of traditionally low-paid business services ranging from call centres to security services, while non-racialized Canadians are not.
