Our Economy Won’t Work Without Latinos

Many would agree that it’s been tough for American workers lately, and particularly for Latinos, who carry an added burden given the unique barriers that they face in the labor market.  Hispanics confront not only high unemployment but also the assumption that they don’t belong in this country.  Worse, anti-immigrant rhetoric has fueled the scapegoating of Latino workers, limiting the possibility of increased economic security and, consequently, a stronger America.

But the truth is that our economy won’t function without the workers we currently have. That’s why on Thursday we’re joining LATISM for a Twitter chat on what we can do to improve this situation.  We’ll be joined by the Center for American Progress as well.  Just log on to Twitter at 9:00 p.m. ET on Thursday and use #OurEconomy to join the party!

It’s sure to be a spirited chat that you won’t want to miss.  We’ll see you online!
