As the largest and fastest-growing minority group and a population characterized by its youthfulness, Latinos compose an increasingly important segment of the U.S. economy. Unemployment among young workers is on the rise and is especially high for minorities, including Latinos. These trends call for swift action on a comprehensive policy agenda to train and employ young workers, with specific attention to the needs of young Latinos. This report offers an overview of current Latino employment trends and recommends policies that Congress should consider immediately to tackle these challenges.
