Latino Jobs Report: Latino Unemployment Drops to 6.6%

Fact Sheet

The July 2021 jobs report showed the economy added 943,000 jobs, marking the second month of strong job growth.

The hospitality and leisure sector drove much of the job creation, a trend that has been consistent for several months.

Latino unemployment is down to 6.6%. Although this month’s job report showed improvements, Latinos are still far behind where they were pre-pandemic and faring worse than other worker groups. These ongoing disparities highlight the need for bold policy action inclusive of Latinos, immigrants, and undocumented workers to ensure a full and equitable recovery.
