The entire focus of the research will be to look for unacceptable scenarios, and suggest effective solutions to the same.
The official release of government agency National Statistics' Labour Market Review for March 2006, presents an unwelcome fact: it provides that compared to a White, a black person is three times more likely to be unemployed, and compared to a person of Indian origin, two times. (National Statistics Labour Market Review, p. 33) For the people of Bangladeshi and Pakistani origin, unemployment rates were as high as 15% (p.29). With this initial information at our hands, we are poised to take a closer look at something other than the tip of the iceberg.

For a scientific study of labour market concepts, we have to understand the core mechanisms of labour market study. According to a standard textbook on the economics of labour market, the research has to be based on the following areas of discussion (Bosworth, D. Table of contents):
Operation of labour market
Competition, segmentation, Union effects, wages and earnings
Based on above mentioned parameters, we examine the present course of
discussion about the position of black community in UK's labour market, and perform a detailed examination of current trends and future solutions.
Going back to the official dossier on labour market study, we understand that supply of labour to any economy can be classified into the following sub-categories: sex, age, disability, ethnic origins, qualification levels and type of employment (National Statistics Labour Market Review, p.20). According to the findings, employment rates for blacks were 15% lower compared to whites for the period of study, Winter 2004 to Autumn 2005 (p.22). Now we analyse the implications of other parameters for our focused discussion on employability of blacks.
Some trends gathered for this purpose shall be put to use in our ongoing discussion, although individual data is absent for black people. It is mentioned that employment levels were significantly higher at 82% for people who had academically, qualified backgrounds (p.22). Also, the largest occupational group of employed people is that of managerial and senior roles, which lies at 15% (p.22). The percentage of part-time workers has risen to 25% in 2004-05 compared to 21% in 1984 (p.23). The percentage
