Case Study: Perceived Cultural Discord and Possible Discrimination Involving a Moroccan Truck Driver in Italy
Ahmed is a 40-year-old Moroccan truck driver who has been working in Italy for the last 13 years. Ahmed has a basic level of education and a sufficient conversational skill in the Italian language. Ahmed lives alone, and although is married with two children, his wife and children were left behind in Morocco. He is also financially accountable for his visually disabled younger brother who lives in Morocco. Ahmed, being the sole breadwinner, relies on his truck driving job to support himself, his immediate family, and his brother’s family (Pfau-Effinger 2004).
