Hispanic Federal Employees Don't Reflect Population Surge


WASHINGTON - According to the newest employment figures released by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the recent surge in Hispanic population totals is not represented in federal government job numbers.   

Though the percentage of minorities working for the federal government has increased by 5 percent their hiring numbers for Hispanics have remained flat from year-to-year.

According to the 2010 Federal Equal Opportunity Recruitment report there are 647,588 minority employees working for the federal government.

The Federal workforce is 17.7 percent Black, 8.0 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific  Islander, 1.8 percent Native American, 0.7 percent non-Hispanic/Multi-racial, and 66.2 percent White.

Minorities as a whole constituted 33.8 percent of the FW. Men comprised 56.1 percent of all Federal permanent employees and women 43.9 percent.

Progress has been made with respect to the representation of women and minorities at higher pay level positions in the FW. The number of women in Senior Pay levels increased by 7.9 percent (from 6,341 to 6,839). Minority employees in Senior Pay levels increased by 9.4 percent (from 3,709 to 4,059).

The Report shows the representation of women and minorities in professional and administrative positions has also increased. The representation rate of minorities in these
positions rose by 7.4 percent (from 332,934 to 357,468). The number of women represented in professional and administrative positions increased by 5.1 percent (from 505,111 to 531,062).

“The federal government remains committed to efforts to fully draw on the talents and energies of Americans at all levels of government” OPM Director John Berry said in the report.

Barry said, "The Obama administration is working to hire new recruits by accelerating the federal hiring process and putting a special emphasis on hiring more military veterans and disabled Americans."

The report said percentage of minority workers nationwide was about four points lower than the federal average last year. The percentage of black, Asian/Pacific Islander and Native American workers was higher among feds than nationwide, but overall the American workforce is more white.

But the widest disparity between the federal and national workforce is still among Hispanics. Their numbers in the federal sector remained flat year-to-year and more than five points below the national average, the report said, despite an astounding 43 percent growth rate of Latinos in the United States in the last decade, according to the 2010 Census.
