Abstract
One of the central features of the contemporary U.S. workforce is that it is increasingly diverse, reflecting the changing demographic characteristics of our nation. In 2008, 15.6% of the U.S. employed labor force identified themselves as foreign-born: 19.2% were white non-Hispanic or Latino, 49.4% were of Hispanic ethnicity, and an estimated 12.8% were employed in the Manufacturing Sector. In 2008, 3.8% of all employed workers were age 16-19 (1.4% in Manufacturing) and 18.4% were over 55 (18.1% in Manufacturing). Approximately 4% of workers in the U.S. labor force identify themselves as disabled.
