Black Unemployment Stands at 15.5% in March 2011
However, the 'rising waters' aren't floating the employment 'boats' in the Black community. A new employment report released this morning by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows us that the unemployment rate for African Americans dipped slightly to 15.5% in March 2011.
Overall, the number of unemployed persons, at 13.5 million ... as 216,000 more people went to work in March.
What do these numbers mean to you?
