Hispanic Worker Deaths on the Rise

Hispanic Business, Posted: Jul 22, 2009

The number of U.S. Hispanic workers who die on the job has risen by 76 percent since 1992, even as the nation's total number of on-the-job deaths is on the decline, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics. The number of Hispanic worker deaths increased from 533 in 1992 to a record 990 deaths in 2006, according to a report by USA Today. The problem has been especially pronounced in Texas, according to the report. Only part of the spike can be explained by the rising number of Hispanics in the American workforce, which increased from 10.4 percent in 1998 to 14 percent in 2007, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
