Hispanic Workers Ages 50+ May Help Employers Solve Potential Future Labor Shortages
Date:6/8/2009

llion Hispanics ages 50-69 were employed in 2007, earning a total of $126 billion.
  • At age 65, Hispanic men and women can expect to live three years longer than non-Hispanic whites and four years longer than non-Hispanic blacks.

  • Noting that the number of Hispanics ages 50-69 is expected to nearly quadruple by 2050, AARP focused on employer practices to increase the employment prospects of older Hispanics. They include:

    • Develop recruiting materials in English and Spanish if an employer is open to hiring workers who are not fluent in English.
    • Use media outlets and other recruiting channels that serve the Hispanic community.
    • Implement retraining programs to help older workers in physically demanding jobs transition into positions that require less physical exertion.
    • Consider offering educational opportunities to workers and job seekers who are good matches for certain career opportunities but who lack a few skills. Such training could include English-as-a-Second language and skill training, the report suggested.
    • Consider training for managers that encourages them to embrace workplace diversity and stresses the value that diverse viewpoints can provide an employer.

    For more findings on the older Hispanic workforce, including differing statistics on foreign-born and U.S.-born Hispanic workers, please see the full report at http://www.aarp.org/research/work/employment/hispanic_workers_09.html.
