Latino Unemployment Remains High

Listen
AIR DATE: January 14, 2014

Other groups have been quicker to return to work, but Latino workers have increasingly dropped out of the work force or endured long stretches of unemployment. Why has the recession hit the Hispanic community so much harder than other groups? And what needs to happen to help them recover?
