UM Study: Race Still Affects Managers' Hiring Practices
We're not living in post-racial America quite yet. A new study conducted by the University of Miami School of Business Administration shows that white, Asian, and Hispanic managers tend to higher more whites and fewer blacks than black managers do.
"We interpret this increase in the white quit rate as evidence of
discriminatory sorting by white job seekers," reads the study. "It implies
that whites who dislike working for black managers often avoid working for
black managers in the first place."
Meanwhile, managers of all races are more likely to hire workers that live close to them, so a manager who lives in a neighborhood predomintetly populated by one race is more likely to hire from that race.
