What is employment?

Employment is defined as having paid work. While having stable well-paying employment is a problem for ethnic minority people of all genders, this is especially a challenge for many ethnic minority women and girls. Women and girls are often limited by their familial and cultural values whereby they are expected to become home-makers or dependent on their husbands, fathers, or even brothers. 

 

What sort of challenges do ethnic minorities face in Hong Kong?

Most of the challenges stem from the language barrier that ethnic minorities face as well as the stigma around them. Hong Kong has, over many years, has developed institutionalized discrimination against its ethnic minority population. While many Hong Kongers state that they do not feel as if discrimination is a big issue here,  the ethnic minority population, being the victim, feels the full brunt of discrimination in a number of ways, employment being but one.
