NCLR to Release Latino Labor Poll Results as Trump Administration Seeks to Slash DOL Budget

June 8, 2017

WASHINGTON, DC—At noon on Monday, June 12, NCLR (National Council of La Raza) will release results from a new poll of Latino voters that documents health, safety and wage issues in the workplace during a telephonic briefing for reporters. The poll comes on the heels of a proposed 21-percent slash to the Department of Labor’s (DOL) budget that guts workforce training programs and severely hinders the agency’s ability to enforce workplace health, safety and wage standards. The poll of 700 Latino voters, administered by Latino Decisions, was conducted between May 12 and 25, 2017.

The poll measures Latino workers’ experiences in the workplace around issues of safety, wages, access to worker supports, and more. Panelists will discuss the results of the poll as well as the impact of proposed DOL cuts on Hispanic workers, who are projected to make up nearly one in five workers by the year 2020.

Media wishing to attend should RSVP to Camila Gallardo, NCLR Assistant Director of Communications, at cgallardo@nclr.org or (305) 215-4259.
