Latinos See Job Gains, But Wages Remain Flat

More than a quarter of the jobs created in the last year have gone to immigrants, but the surge in hiring has yet to translate into higher wages for these workers, according to a study by the Pew Hispanic Center.

Immigrant Latinos, especially the most recent arrivals, have captured the most jobs in the past year, the study found. In the 12 months ending March 31, the economy added a net total of 1.3 million new jobs. Non-citizens captured 378,496 (28.5 percent) of these jobs. Employment growth for non-citizens was twice as fast as their population growth nationwide. The proportion of new jobs captured by non-citizens was also much larger than their share of overall employment (8.6 percent).

The report found that weekly earnings for Hispanics and most other workers remain stagnant. The median weekly wage for Hispanics has declined in all but one of the past eight quarters, according to the study. This means median wages for Latinos have also lost ground in comparison with the national median wage, according to the study.

The Pew Hispanic Center is a project of the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication. It was found in 2001 with support from the Pew Charitable Trusts.
