Are Latinos Good Job Creators In California?

Latino business success in California is fundamental to position them as job creators to one of the nations’ largest state. The California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce in collaboration with the Haas Business School at the University of California, Berkeley, published a study, demonstrating that there are some 700,000 Hispanic-owned businesses throughout California, contributing upwards of 650,000 jobs to the state’s economy. Today, Latinos are the fastest-growing segment of business owners, starting businesses and creating jobs in massive numbers. 

However, are the jobs created good jobs? Given California’s changing demographics, it is critical to support businesses, allowing them to prosper and provide good jobs that California’s growing population needs. Is your business committed to not only being successful but invested in a thriving community?
