Among high school seniors, Hispanics are least likely to have a job


















We saw in a recent post that Hispanics in high school skip classes more than others. Well, it's because they're working, right, which might not be ideal, but hey, at least it's not hanging out on the street corner or something. The only problem is that Hispanic teens attending school are less likely to have a job than whites.

The graph (N = 11,758, 2008 Monitoring the Future) shows that 73 percent of white seniors have some kind of part-time work. This is compared to only 61 percent of Latinos (and 62 percent of blacks). Whites get better grades, even though they spend more time working.

That is definitely -not- a good sign then. Wow, they really are acclimating to black underclass norms aren't they?


With our welfare policies, that reward single women for having babies with WIC, food-stamps, AFDC-payments, a project-apartment/or HUD/or Section 8 housing, we are practically begging hispanics to be a new ethnic underclass.

I read that the out-of-wedlock birthrate of legal hispanics is now up to 50%. For illegals it was in the mid-30's. We are fostering the same dependency in them that we did with the blacks, building a matriarchy--in which the males are only really necessary for sperm donation and the women can have kids while chasing the most attractive males to themselves and not marry. Matriarchies are social and financial catastrophies.

Perhaps most of the hispanics who get jobs drop out of school by their senior year. It could be that overall, 17-18 year-old hispanics are most likely to have jobs.
