ntheory, labor market discrimination is defined as the different treatment of two equally qualified individuals on account of their,,,, etc.is harmful since it affects the economic outcomes of equally productive workers directly and indirectly througheffects.Darity and Mason  summarize that the standard approach used in identifying employment discrimination is to isolate groupdifferences (, work experience). Differences in outcomes (such as earnings, job placement) that cannot be attributed to worker qualifications are attributed to discriminatory treatment.
In the non-neoclassical view, discrimination is the main source of inequality in the labor market and is seen in the persistent gender andin the U.S.Non-neoclassical economists define discrimination more broadly thanFor example, the feminist economist Deborah Figart  defines labor market discrimination as “a multi-dimensional interaction of economic, social, political, and cultural forces in both the workplace and the family, resulting in different outcomes involving pay, employment, and status”.That is, discrimination is not only about measurable outcomes but also about unquantifiable consequences. It is important to note that the process is as important as the outcomes.Furthermore, genderare embedded inand shapepreferences as well worker preferences; therefore, it is not easy to separate discrimination from productivity-related inequality.
Although labor market inequalities have declined after the U.S., the movement towards equality has slowed down after the mid-1970s, especially more in gender terms than racial terms.The key issue in the debate on employment discrimination is the persistence of discrimination, namely, why discrimination persists in a capitalist economy.
