Latinas had the highest unemployment rate this year — and it’s driving them to vote
In April, one in five Latinas were jobless. In November, unemployment will be on their minds.
A year of punishing job loss has reshuffled priorities for many Latinas. No group has suffered higher unemployment — 20.2% at one point. It's prompting a political awakening. This year it’s become “if I don’t vote, my family is in danger.”
