Abstract In this paper I have examined Labour Market Discrimination, a theoretical and empirical review. Within my literature review I have looked at a number of neoclassical theories and theoretical frameworks that support my analysis of labour market discrimination. The data for my regression and analysis has been sourced from the UK Labour Force Survey from the Office of National Statistics, which has given me confidence in the reliability and validity of my results. Stata 12.0 software has been used for the econometric analysis. From my econometric analysis I have concluded that constant variable between males and females impact wages differently and a cause for this can be put down to discrimination in the labour market from the residual information gathered from my error term.
