difference and Caribbean feminism:

To investigate the research questions, participants were administered with questionnaires and interviews. The leading barriers that were identified by participants included: racial stereotyping of Caribbean black women (80 percent), challenge of getting formal employment and technical jobs (78 percent), challenge of having career progression and leadership company leadership positions (75 percent), and violence and harassments against Caribbean women both at home and in the workplace (69 percent). After further investigations, the study found that a lower fraction of black Caribbean women in the United States are often admitted to higher levels of employment or white-collar jobs. In the last five years, there has been a significant increase in Black Caribbean women participating in low-quality jobs, both in the formal and the informal sectors of the American economy. For instance, many Caribbean black women often work in temporary contracts and casual labor. Consequently, they do not have the prospect of climbing the employment ladder to managerial and executive positions. This problem has also led to high turnover rates in the proportion of female laborers on temporary contracts. In low quality levels of employment, black Caribbean women are often subject to high turnover rates and increased unemployment, coupled with reduced social benefits and stagnant wages. This results in economic insecurity. Consequently, they suffer from minimal prospects of being admitted to high-quality work.
