The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics Jobs Report shows the general unemployment rate ticked down to the lowest rate since May 1969, and the number of jobs added was above market expectations [1]. However, the unemployment rate for Latina women increased.

NDWA Labs’ December Report shows that the joblessness rate for domestic worker respondents increased to 22% in January 2023 from 19% in the fourth quarter of 2022.
