Hispanic Workers See Wage Gains

Foreign-born Hispanics saw notable progress in terms of wages from 1995 to 2005, according to a study by the Pew Hispanic Center.

The study found that the proportion of foreign-born Hispanics who were at the lowest quintile of the wage distribution in the United States decreased from 42 percent in 1995 to 36 percent in 2005.

From 1995 to 2005, newly arrived Hispanic immigrants were older, better educated, and more likely to be employed in construction than in agriculture, which all played a part in lowering, from 64 percent to 50 percent, the proportion of newly arrived Hispanic immigrants who earned low wages.

The study found that despite the progress, many Latinos remain low-wage earners. While the share of Hispanics who earn low wages fell from 1995 to 2005, the absolute number of Hispanics who earned low wages grew by 1.2 million.

For the study, the researchers used Census Bureau data.
