The Latino Workforce at Mid-Decade. CSRC Research Report. Number 10
Catanzarite, Lisa; Trimble, Lindsey
UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (NJ1)
The Latino workforce is increasingly critical to the vitality of the U.S. economy. Despite the importance of Latinos in the labor market, their economic contributions are limited by significant disadvantages. This research report provides an overview of Latino workers in the United States at mid-decade. We provide background information on labor force share and labor force participation, then we delve into how Latinos are faring in the labor market by examining educational preparation, occupations, earnings, employment sectors, and unemployment. The presentation is intended to inform public discussion of Latino workforce incorporation and to guide policy interventions that will improve employment prospects for Latino workers. (Contains 7 figures, 1 table and 3 notes.)[This series is a project of the CSRC Latino Research Program, which receives funding from the University of California Committee on Latino Research.]
