The ‘Millennial Generation’ face a series of unique challenges, particularly in how they have entered and progressed through the labour market.
This is from the 2020 joint report from Operation Black Vote, Centre for Longitude Studies and Carnegie UK Trust. This paper explores connections between work, ethnicity and mental health.
The report finds:
- Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) young adults continue to be at a greater risk of being unemployed than White young adults
- Despite a focus on the precariousness of this generation’s employment, the probability of having a permanent contract is over 80% for all ethnic groups
- Some ethnic minority groups report more mental ill health than the White group, whilst other ethnic groups report less.
