Employers discriminate against Muslims, study finds
by Steve Connor
Muslims face "massive discrimination" when applying for jobs, according to the first scientifically validated study of anti-Muslim bias among employers in France.
Researchers now want to study whether there is a similar bias in Britain, where unemployment among Muslims is higher than in any other religious group.
The French study found that a fictional job applicant with a traditionally Christian first name was more than two-and-a-half times more likely to receive a response from a potential French employer than an identical applicant with a Muslim name.
