The Economy, Small Businesses and Small Communities

Nationally, the nation’s unemployment hovers around 10 percent. This does not include what some say would be about another 5 to 7 percent who simply have given up trying to find jobs. And the unemployment rate for Blacks and Latinos is higher than the national average.

To examine this complex jobs situation, Latino USA’s Maria Hinojosa speaks with two people who bring very different perspectives on the economy.

Paul Cuadros is a journalism professor who has been documenting the economic impact of immigration in rural North Carolina. He also teaches at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Lydia Gutierrez is an entrepreneur from Detroit, Michigan and owner of a tortillería called Hacienda Mexican Foods.
