Gap in employment by race has narrowed

In 2012, 15 percentage points separated the shares of non-Hispanic whites and people of color who were working; today, the gap stands at 10 percentage points. We now see higher levels of employment among both groups, but gains in employment have been stronger for workers of color. In particular, we have seen strong gains in employment among black and Hispanic Minnesotans over the last several years.
