Abstract: This study aims to better understand the phenomena of discrimination in the labor market. Based on data from the Labour Force Survey conducted by INSEE in 2007, the idea is to determine whether the variable African national origin, supposedly without affecting productivity in employment, nevertheless affect salary. Our results fall within a variable position depending on the origin in the labor market and show that African migrants are more likely to be unemployed compared to other segments of the French population. Moreover, the share of African labor force occupying self-employment is relatively small compared to other forces at work. Differences in the professional profiles of employees have been put forward, but no job insecurity has been shown to a particular group of employees. It is also shown that the African migrants are paid less than employees of French origin, while other migrants paid more than the French descendant of French.
