Labor market discrimination more topical than ever

The fear of losing your job is a familiar feeling for many people, especially those with a migrant background. Is finding a new job after losing it still doable? After the political debate Social Affairs and Employment on December 7, 2020, the discussion about labor market discrimination is more topical than ever: discrimination in the labor market should come to an end, according to most parties in the House of Representatives.

Employers and intermediaries often post their vacancies in places that job seekers infrequently visit. The free websites have many job openings, but are less popular with job seekers. At the same time, the market is increasingly dominated by a number of major sites, many of which are owned by large employment agencies.
