Non-white job candidates are most likely to face discrimination in this country (it’s NOT the U.S.)

While racial discrimination in hiring plagues many developed countries, one nation may have particular trouble bidding it adieu.

France has the highest level of hiring discrimination against non-white groups, according to a meta-analysis of data from nine countries published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Sociological Science. Researchers analyzed findings from 97 hiring field experiments that included more than 200,000 job applications.

“In every country we consider, nonwhite applicants suffer significant disadvantage in receiving callbacks for interviews compared with white natives with similar job-relevant characteristics,” the study authors wrote. “This difference is driven by race, not immigrant status.”
