California residents might like to know about the hiring bias that black and Latino workers face. One meta-study suggests that little improvement has been made over the years when it comes to eliminating this bias.
Researchers at Harvard, Northwestern and the Institute of Social Research conducted a meta-study that reviewed multiple existing studies. The research used 28 studies from 1989 for comparison when looking at how racial bias influences hiring. The results showed that Latinos saw a moderate drop in hiring discrimination while blacks saw no improvement over 25 years.
