Abstract

Indicates that for Hispanics not of Puerto Rican origin the standardized wage differential is very close to zero. Suggests that a solution to the problem of low Hispanic wage rates requires a policy to promote additional education for Hispanics. Higher education not only raises wage rates, it also lowers the probability and duration of unemployment spells, which ultimately translate to lower earnings. -from Editors
