Chinese and Indian ethnic groups biggest earners in the United Kingdom

Recommended Posts

Chinese and Indian ethnic group workers have higher average earnings than their white British counterparts, the first official figures on the issue show.

But the data on the ethnicity pay gap, showed all other ethnic groups have lower wages than white British workers.

The Office for National Statistics said employees in the Bangladeshi ethnic group have the largest pay gap, earning 20% less than white British employees.

On average, ethnic minorities earn 3.8% less than white ethnic groups.

The median pay of the white British group was £12.03. The Bangladeshi group had the lowest median hourly pay of £9.60 with the second-lowest paid group being of Pakistani origin at £10 an hour.

Same in the U.S.

Asians are the highest educated and earning group. 

All ties back to education. Asians on avg. pursue more higher degrees. Also, Asians place a significance on grades. We don’t ask our kids to do anything else outside of making the Honor Roll. Which in turn equates to getting accepted at a higher end University, which in turn equates to a higher salary.

I do hope they send some of that money back to their parents in China, I used to work in a breakfast café well frequented by students and the Chinese ones would often come in and pay for their £7.90 breakfasts with a fresh £50 from the Bank of Daddy.

So sad to see the position of the Muslim social groups like Pakistani and Bangladeshi.

It's mad how both, along with Indians were historically one nation. Yet Indians are second from top.

There has to be a cultural difference in attitude to instilling and emphasising on education and professional careers.

Also women of the bottom two groups, especially Bangladeshis have the highest illiteracy or lack of English skills and integration compared to Indian women.

It surely has an impact.

I don’t live in Great Britain so I don’t know so much the situation. Do you have an idea about why Pakistanis and Bangladeshis are at these situations but not indians ?

As I mentioned, attitudes towards higher education are more pronounced among Indian parents than Pakistani and Bangladeshi ones.

Generally speaking, there were higher numbers of unskilled Pakistani and Bangladeshi immigrants compared to Indian ones when they arrived in 50s and 60s. A lot of the Pakistanis (especially Mirpuris) settled up North too, where after the factories closed, where many worked alongside poor white working class, it led to higher unemployment.

Indians who also came from East Africa were already established merchants and traders too and kept that entrepreurial spirit.

Also, religion can play a role. Hindus and Sikhs find it easier to integrate and assimilate with English colleagues and neighbours compared to Muslims. Especially in work settings, like after work pub/bar social gatherings, these play a crucial part to this day in relation to networking, promotions and referrals. Muslims refraining from alcohol, even places that serve it and eating halal etc unintentionally create a social barrier in terms of social progression. Not making excuses, rather it can serve as an obstacle.

Also not saying criticising the importance of teaching Deen, but naturally Bangladeshi and Pakistani (and Indian Muslim) parents would put more emphasis on learning religion and less so on Dunya etc. Whereas Hindu parents probably less so.

Instead of after-school Madrassa (which in many parts of this country runs 5 days a week 5pm to 7pm), Hindu kids are probably doing extra cirriculum activities or after school tuition.

Though in fairness attitides are changing and a lot more Muslim parents take education more serious and sending kids to tuition etc.

You can thank the British for messing that up.

I'm curious as to how much of a factor the fact that 80% of Indians are Hindu plays in this.

If India was a Muslim majority country would we be seeing numbers that are more along the lines of what Pakistan/Bangladesh have as far as income and education levels go?

Literacy levels are a major factor in determining that. Men and women.

If there is a literacy / education gap then that has nothing to do with bar / pub culture ... regardless of alcohol or not - educational opportunities are widely available... and often at low tuition costs in community colleges. Once you've got the ed you can start your own business etc. no need to depend on measely jobs.
