The Hispanic Labor Force in the Recovery
At nearly 23 million, people of Hispanic ethnicity represented 15% of the U.S. labor force in 2011. By 2020, Hispanics are expected to comprise 19% of the U.S. labor force. The unemployment rate averaged 11.5% among Hispanics in 2011. The most recent unemployment report in February 2012 shows improvement for all Americans, including Hispanics, who have seen their unemployment rate decline to 10.7% in February from a high of 13.1% in November 2010. In addition, unemployed Hispanics experience a shorter duration of unemployment and are less likely to join the ranks of the long-term unemployed than are either their unemployed white or black counterparts.
