Hispanic Federal Workforce Update

Hispanic representation in the U.S. federal workforce has “stalled.”

Was it ever advancing? I’ve written about this for a few years.

The Federal Times reports:

 Federal hiring of Latinos has only increased incrementally since Clinton’s order 17 years ago, said Brent Wilkes, chief executive officer of the League of United Latin American Citizens. Currently about 8.5 percent of the federal workforce is Hispanic.

Reality Check: Working for the .GOV

Yet another look at the federal workforce, which has been covered quite a bit over the years on MAC.com. In this installation, The Atlantic presents thoughts on the satisfaction rates of federal employees and why it’s hard to work for the government. The news is not good as these numbers have been decreasing recently. As for Latinos, whom comprise about 8% of federal workers, their overall satisfaction hovers around 61%, a bit higher than the average.  The full report by the Partnership for Public Service can be found here.
