ABSTRACT

Economic State of the Hispanic Community in America: 'Keys to Building a Better Economy After COVID-19'   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Document: "The economic impacts of the pandemic have been devastating. More than 3 in 5 Hispanic households experienced a reduction in employment income. Due to mass job losses, many Hispanics lost access to employer-sponsored health insurance coverage. Food insecurity doubled. A larger share of Hispanics missed a rent or mortgage payment due to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. The pandemic has revealed and magnified deep fissures and inequities in American society. The crisis requires an urgent reevaluation of the economy to more fully realize the potential of all Americans, including Hispanics. In the aftermath of the pandemic recession, recovery efforts must build back an economy that better meets the needs of all 21st -century American families."
