Things We Hate to Admit Mami was Right About

As much as we don’t want to admit it, life has proven over and over again just how on-point mom was when she said:

Vaporub cures everthing.

Maybe not eeeverything, but it did soothe us.

Amor de lejos, amor de pendejos.

Had I known then what I know now, hell no I wouldn’t have dated that guy from Buenos Aires ?.

She’s not a real friend.

How did she know she was going to try to steal Roberto from me?!

Looks aren’t everything.

Lo guapo con el tiempo se quita. She was sooo right.

Te tienes que bañar todos los días.

We complained because we swore we weren’t smelly, but have you ever walked into a meeting after skipping a shower and felt everyone can tell? It’s because they can.

“No sé” is not an answer.

She was getting us ready for the real world because this never flies with any boss.

You’ll understand when you’re older.

It makes you feel so grown up old when you start getting mom’s point.

God help me if they turn out as crazy.

No les habremos dado lujo ni riqueza, pero les dimos estudio.

A Snapshot of How Much Latinos Make in the Workforce

The workforce in this country can be difficult to understand, let alone explain. But one thing is clear, race plays an important factor.

Even though we’re getting close to recovering from the recent recession, statistics show that some things, like high unemployment among blacks and Hispanics, has been consistent for the past four decades, and it’s a lot higher when compared to white unemployment.

What’s also hasn’t changed — and you probably know this — is that Hispanics are more likely to drop out of high school and work a low-wage job, like farm laborers, maids, and house cleaners. Blacks form clusters of health aids, security guards, and bus drivers. While whites are in managing positions, like construction and farm management and CEOs.

Because blacks and Hispanics are more likely to drop out of high school than to earn a bachelor’s degree, the racial divide in the workforce will probably stay the same for another 40 years.
