Human Inequalities

Economic inequalities are not god-given fatalities. They are manufactured every day by human actions resulting in poverty for those excluded from our societies. The production of economic inequalities consists of very specific political and social manipulations, often not easily visible to many of us.
We produce economic inequality by structuring our labour markets in such a way that wages are not determined by supply and demand alone or by skills and competences. In many countries, whether rich or poor, people are often not given a job because they have the wrong skin colour, gender, religious or sexual preferences or adherence to political parties considered negatively by those who do the recruiting.
