Relatively strong job growth in November pushed the Latino unemployment rate to its lowest level in five years.  Today’s Monthly Latino Employment Report from the National NCLR shows that the Latino unemployment rate for November was 8.7 percent thanks to an increase in the number of Latino jobseekers who found work last month.  The overall U.S. unemployment rate also declined to 7.0 percent.
