Interesting article from NYT on racial bias in hiring NYC waiters…
According to the test results:
- Nonwhite job applicants were 54.5 percent as likely as white applicants to get a job offer, and were less likely than white testers to receive a job interview in the first place.
- The work experience of white job applicants was less likely to be subject to scrutiny.
- Accents made a difference — with white candidates. White applicants with slight European accents were 23.1 percent more likely to be hired than white testers with no accent. However, accents in nonwhite applicants made no difference.
