Young ethnic minority workers more likely to be in unstable jobs - study

Young people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds are at greater risk of being in unstable employment, according to research.
The group is 47% more likely to to be on a zero-hours contract, a study said.
A report from the Carnegie Trust, University College London's Centre for Longitudinal Studies and Operation Black Vote says the group is 4% less likely to have a permanent job.
The researchers compared the experiences of 25-year-olds in England.
It included people who are white, as well mixed-race, Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Black African and Caribbean, and other minority ethnicities, sometimes collectively known as BAME workers.
The report follows research that about a third of FTSE 100 firms have no ethnic minority board members.
