Becker Model of Discrimination

by Jadrian

The local flower delivery guy makes racist remarks to Franco because he's African American. The rest of the characters discuss other comments they have received regarding their nationalities. Labor market discrimination in this scene occurs as Arthur's donut shop is a customer of the flour supplier. Customer discrimination could persist, but if the customers aren't discriminatory, they have the ability to take their business elsewhere, which Arthur and Franco try to do. The Becker Model of discrimination argues that only customer discrimination can last in the long run because competition should drive out co-worker or firm discrimination.
