This paper will analyse the nature and development of the 'ethnicisation of temporary jobs' in Britain, drawing on the data obtained from the Workplace and Employment Relations Survey and Labour Force Survey. To discuss the process of ethnicisation, first a growth in the proportion of temporary employment among the BME communities and migrant workers will be analysed along with comparisons to the white British workers. Then, the shift of temporary jobs in recent years toward such groups will be explored. In particular, the paper will analyse the disadvantages of BME communities and migrant workers in temporary jobs with regard to pay, unionisation, workload, training opportunities and job satisfaction.
