Switzerland -Gender and anti-migrant bias on the labour market -September 26, 2015

A conference at Bern University of Applied Sciences, bringing together academics and policy makers, addressed gender and anti-migrant bias on the labour market and how to combat it. Foreigners and second-generation migrants tend to have more problems finding work than Swiss do, men earn more than women do, and older workers are less desirable to employers. These are some of the ways in which discrimination is perceived. Participants also discussed the economic costs of discrimination.
