Reality Check: The Latino Workforce in 2012

The L.A Times shares of snapshot of the Latino workforce to date. Many positive trends overall but still a lot of work to do:

At the start of the recession in late 2007, the Hispanic unemployment rate was 6.3% nationwide and 6.4% in California, where more than 14 million of the nation’s 50.5 million Latinos live.

As the economy worsened, the jobless rate for Hispanics hit a peak in November 2010 at 13.1% nationally and 14.7% in California. Since then, those rates have fallen to 10.5% and 13.8%, respectively.
