Hispanic Business - Inland Latinos are gaining jobs at a faster rate than non-Hispanics, a new report indicates.
The study by the Washington, D.C.-based Economic Policy Institute shows that Inland Latinos still have a higher unemployment rate than non-Hispanics. But the gap narrowed in 2011.
The unemployment rate for Hispanics in Riverside and San Bernardino counties dropped from 18.1 percent in 2010 to 15.4 percent in 2011, the study found. The overall rate fell from 14.3 percent to 13.4 percent, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
