Hispanics Urge Transition Team to Reform Government Hiring

HispanicBusiness.com, Robert Janis Posted: Dec 26, 2008

The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda is lobbying the incoming Obama Administration to adopt strategies to increase the representation of Latinos among federal employees, HispanicBusiness.com reports. The group developed a plan and submitted it to Congress two years ago.

That compares to 17 percent of the civilian workforce which is Latino.
