Institutional Racism in M&S! M&S advertises itself as a tolerant equal opportunities' provider. This is factually incorrect and a completely false statement. People from ethnic minorities are treated differently to their white counterparts when it comes to pay, promotions, fair treatment, working time regulations, basic human dignity and recruitment. For example, in Peterborough store where the ethnic minorities accounts for nearly 30% population. However, I have witnessed how people from ethnic minorities were not given equal opportunities. In store out of the 120 colleagues, people belong to ethnic minorities is under 5 people. I have seen this across many stores of M&S. Similarly, in senior Management in stores you would never ever find ethnic minority colleagues. I have worked 15 years for M&S and have never seen a Graduate belong to ethnic minorities, when 2018/2019 statistics show the First-Class graduates among both white and ethnic minorities are 30% and 24% respectively.
