Study: Discrimination endures in Mexican labor market

Posted:

 A new study says racial and ethnic discrimination continues to be an obstacle for many in the Mexican labor market.

   The Project on Ethnicity and Race in Latin America reports that the study determined lighter-skinned Mexicans with a university education are 11 percent more likely to win a higher-paying job than their darker-skinned counterparts.

   The study also finds that fair-skinned Mexicans tend to go to school longer and enjoy more socio-economic advantages.

   It says that while 65 percent of participants identified themselves as "mestizo," 74 percent were classified as such by the interviewers.

   The study included 3,000 surveys in Mexico beginning in 2008 and was made public Thursday.

   It was carried out by researchers from Princeton University and Mexico's Center for Research and Higher Studies in Social Anthropology.
