Latinos Grapple With Jobs And Housing

As noted earlier this year in a UNLV-Brookings Institute Study, The Las Vegas Latino community is still in recession. That means the need for services -- including housing assistance, foreclosure help, and health access -- remains high as the economy improves generally. Yet, according to workers on the ground, the new trend in the community is to shun those services. We talk with Margarita Robellal, the Executive Director at Community Services of Nevada about a trend she says is deeply troubling and largely ignored. We also speak with UNLV professor John Tuman about why a bad job market lingers for Latinos.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
