According to a press release on the ESRI website a press release for a report published by ESRI and the Equality Authority announces that 'Black Africans have the highest rate of unemployment and the lowest rate of employment; this group also reports the highest rates of discrimination both in the workplace and when looking for work.'
One of the findings was that 'Black Africans are almost seven times more likely to report experiencing discrimination in the workplace, and seven times more likely to report having experienced discrimination when looking for work.'
Ethnicity and Nationality in the Irish Labour Market
According to the press release, Ms Renee Dempsey CEO of the Equality Authority stated that "This report shows that immigrants do not fare as well as Irish nationals in the Irish labour market. Clearly there needs to be a renewed focus on promoting equality for immigrants and for minority ethnic groups in the labour market and throughout society."
Africans complaining about wacism and discwimination in Ireland - well, isn't that just terrible? The solution to all this 'wacism' right now is more Quangoism, more money to be spent educating and browbeating the natives about the evils of giving jobs to Irish people, the benefits of cultuwal divewsity, and more 'jobs' for suitably appropriate boys and girls to push yet more propaganda that we cannot give jobs to our own people.
Their high rates of unemployment might, of course, have nothing to do with their work ethic or lack thereof and the fact that they might be better off financially by not working.
Comments on an Irish Independent article on the same topic are instructive as to the true feelings of Irish people. Maybe we do prefer our own kind after all.
