Black Unemployment Rate Rises As Overall Rate Falls

The Bureau of Labor Statistics report lists the rates for blacks, whites, Hispanics and all other groups in the United States. Even inside the black community the pain is unevenly spread. Black women had a drop in their unemployment rate from 13% to 12.5% while black men went from 16.2% to 16.8%. Let’s not gloss over the gap between black men and black women with a 4.3% more of an unemployment percentage among black men.

Rep. Barbara Lee's statement:

“It’s encouraging to learn that the national unemployment rate is moving in the right direction, and we must take steps to ensure that this trend continues. But the recovery is not reaching every community. The African-American unemployment rate went up to 15.5%, an increase from last month, and the Hispanic unemployment rate is still over 11%.

“It’s been 3 months since Republicans took control of the House and they have yet to create a single job. We should be focused on direct job creation for our nation’s most vulnerable communities, fostering new economic opportunities in underserved communities and providing pathways out of poverty. And while millions of displaced workers are looking for new jobs, Congress should pass the bill that I introduced with Rep. Bobby Scott in February to extend emergency aid for workers who have exhausted their unemployment benefits.

“A true economic recovery cannot be experienced until it is felt by every community in our nation, especially our communities of color.”
