Our Minority Workforce
As non-Hispanic white people become a smaller part of the U.S. population, it becomes an even greater concern that minorities tend to not do as well economically. According to the Working Poor Families Project Hispanics and African-Americans though an increasingly larger segment of the workforce, will remain under prepared and underpaid.
According to the Casey Foundation, by 2018 children of color will represent the majority of children in the nation, and by 2030 the majority of the workforce will be people of color. These two minority groups are the ones who have the most difficulty succeeding in school and have the highest percentage of school dropouts.
