Ethnicity Discrimination in Romania`s Labour Market
AbstractBy discrimination one understands any distinction, exclusion, restriction, preference, different treatment that puts a person or a group to disadvantage when compared to other persons /groups in similar situations. Discrimination is a general feature of social life and it is rooted into preconception. By preconception one understands rejecting the “other” as member of a group which is invested with negative feelings. In this article, we analysed the main ethnic groups from Romania (Romanian, Hungarian and Rroma) based on the data provided by the population census (2002), by the Discrimination among employers Survey (2010) and by the European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey (2009). Rroma population shows the highest level of vulnerability on the labor market in Romania, because they are discriminated both by the employers and by the dominant population as a consequence of the way they are perceived.
