Hispanic Job Rate Shows Signs of Recovery

Mi Gente, Posted: Feb 25, 2010

NEW YORK -- The White House affirmed that there are signs of improvement in the job market, including among jobs for low-skilled workers, many of whom are Latino, Mi Gente reports. Jared Bernstein, chief economic advisor to Vice President Joe Biden, said the government is promoting new jobs, not only in sectors like clean energy that require high qualifications, but also sectors that demand less formal preparation. According to a study from the Department of Labor, the United States will see an increased need for jobs in the next decade in sectors including child care, caregivers for the sick and elderly, restaurants and retail workers. Jobs in construction, an important source of work for Hispanics, are also expected to increase, Bernstein said.

Unemployment stands at 12.6 percent in the Hispanic population. But according to Bernstein, history shows that economic recuperation has been faster among minorities like Hispanics and African Americans.
