The employment picture for Hispanics and Latinos improved for the fourth consecutive month in August as the nation’s businesses continued reopening from the coronavirus-prompted shutdown. The 10.5% national, seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate for Hispanics and Latinos in August fell by 2.4 percentage points from July’s 12.9% level and 8.4 points from the record-high of 18.9% set in April, but remained well above March’s 6.0% mark.

In August, more than one million more Hispanics had jobs and 635,000 fewer were unemployed, compared to the previous month, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported Friday. BLS began tracking Hispanic-Latino employment data in 1973.

In August, 365,000 more Hispanics participated in the workforce.
