Introduction to Australian Journal of Labour Economics, Special Issue: Labour Market Discrimination

Article OPEN
Boyd Hunter ; Nicholas Biddle (2013)

Such unequal treatment is clearly bad for the individual involved, but it is also bad for the economy as resources are diverted from their most productive use.
