Unemployment for Hispanics, African Americans remains high Marketplace • July 5, 2012

According to a recent study by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), African Americans and Hispanics are still at a disadvantage when it comes to employment in some metro areas.

The EPI scanned 19 metro areas with large African American populations and 25 metros with large Hispanic populations.  Both studies found that unemployment in 2011 was higher than the national rate for African Americans and Hispanics in several metro areas.
