Some things have been clear for a while. The Great Recession and its anemic recovery has severly hurt Americans in every corner of the nation, in every community. And, this is the perennial problem: as always, an economic downturn hurts racial and ethnic minorities more. Some of the figures about young Latinos in the recession are compiled in a new report produced by Dēmos and Young Invincibles entitled "The State of Young America," Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 are suffering disproportionately compared to the rest of the population, and among young Americans, Latinos and African Americans suffer worse still.
Some key facts about young Latinos today - all, the authors say, are directly due to the economy - in the report:
- 78 percent of young Latinos believe that it has become harder or much harder to make ends meet since the financial crisis began four years ago, as compared to 69 percent of non-Latino whites and 66 percent of African Americans
- When asked whether workers were currently within their chosen field, 53 percent of Latinos said they were waiting for something better, compared to 66 percent of African Americans and 40 percent of non-Latino whites
- 51 percent of young Latinos are part of a union, or open to joining one if possible, compared to 56 percent of African Americans and 37 percent of non-Latino whites
- Over the past four years, 64 percent of African Americans have experienced earning increases compared to 54 percent of non-Latino whites and 41 percent of Latinos
- Latinos and African Americans are much more likely to have incomes of less than $30,000 (67 percent and 69 percent respectively); 55 percent of non-Latino whites earn less than $30,000.
- Young Latinos are more likely to delay getting married (26 percent), moving out on their own (43 percent), purchasing a home (47 percent), and starting a family (33 percent) than non-Latino whites (22 percent, 28 percent, 44 percent, and 25 percent respectively). African Americans have been hit hardest of all, with 31 percent delaying getting married, 38 percent delaying moving out on their own, 56 percent delaying buying a home, and 39 percent delaying starting a family
- Across the board, those polled agreed that education and training are the keys to success in the economy, but apprehension about how to obtain those things was highest among African Americans, at 44 percent, and Latinos, at 32 percent, with only 19 percent of non-Latino whites sharing that uneasiness.
- Latinos are the least likely to be in debt for amounts ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, at 31 percent--compared to 38 percent of non-Latino whites and 35 percent of African Americans. I guess that's the good news for Latinos.
- Latino youth employment is nearly double the national average.

When fans speak about the greatest players of all time in baseball, why never they mention Al Kaline? Why is not he pointed out with the likes of Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth?
