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.
