This is a 10 page paper discussing minority immigrants living in poverty and the relation to education and employment. Within the last decade, increasing high levels of poverty have been recorded in the minority and recent immigrant populations in Canada and the United States. In Canada, recent immigrants make up over 52% of those under the poverty line in urban areas. Traditionally, immigrants coming into Canada whether skilled or unskilled laborers reached the average Canadian income in less than 10 years after their arrival. Educated immigrants previously had attained average or above income. Within the last 10 years however, this has not been the case and educated and professional immigrants are among the poorest population group in Canada along with the uneducated minority immigrants. Part of this is because it had been felt that due to the decline in the labor market, employers do not recognize the foreign credentials of immigrants but many critics also believe that discrimination plays a large part as well. Educational programs within Canada and the United States tend to focus on overcoming the language barrier firstly in addition to upgrading any educational or occupational labor skills. Regardless of the awareness of increased need in this area, many researchers still agree that the greatest barrier for most minority immigrants is racism which unless overcome will continue to reflect in an unequal representation of immigrant groups in poverty.

This is a 10 page paper discussing Latinos, immigration and poverty in the U.S. The January 2003 U.S. Census reported that for the first time in history, Latinos have become the largest minority group in the U.S. That being said, Latino immigrants are also one of the poorest populations in the U.S. with more rather than fewer restrictions being placed on their welfare benefits, employment opportunities and health care access within the last decade. Several barriers for Latino immigrants continue to keep the poverty rate high within the population. In addition to education and language barriers which prevent them from access to better work opportunities and health care, political and segregation barriers such as welfare restrictions and work area pay penalties within industries which are almost exclusively manned by Latino and minority workers prevent them from opportunities to get out of the poverty ridden barrios in the larger metropolitan areas. There are some situations which provide better income opportunities for Latinos, primarily Mexican immigrant laborers, such as those in the Napa area of California but overall the average Latino family income is twenty-five percent less than its Anglo equivalent and will continue to worsen unless changes are made to meet the needs of this growing population.
