Unfortunately, many people of Hispanic descent in the Americas today are facing poverty. Part of this has to do with how bad the economy has been for close to a decade now. However, people of Hispanic descent have long been over-represented by statistics regarding the impoverished in the Americas.
Part of the problem is simply that many come from impoverished families, so it becomes difficult to grow up and grow out of these situations. Many may even be suffering from poor financial habits brought on by their parents.
Another handicap they face is that most are the children of parents who never went to college. As such, statistically, they’re less likely to go to a four year school. The problem may start much earlier though, with high school programs that aren’t designed to meet the needs of our Hispanic youths, especially those who may face special challenges (as many of America’s children do).
Obviously, these problems then compound themselves when it comes time to enter or thrive in the workforce. Without the skill set they need, many Hispanic adults either go without work or take on jobs that pay less than they should be making, given their skill level.
Here at Hunter Don Hispanos, we promote well being amongst the underprivileged Hispanic sections in the Americas. Given their huge contributions to these countries, it would be a shame if Hispanic people were not able to better themselves. Fortunately, we believe in the Hispanic spirits of these nations and are confident they will pull through, endure and even thrive. If the past is anything to go by, it’s happened before.
