This study focuses on the labor market and Mexican-Americans in the United States. I use peer reviewed sources to fully examine and determine the fairness of labor laws protecting this population. Additionally, the study provides an in depth analysis of unfair labor practices and a comparison of the types of jobs and location in the United States affecting the Mexican-American population in the labor market. My intended audience are those unaware of unfair labor practices who want labor wages to be fair for every working citizen in the U.S., and not be discriminated based on ethnicity/race. My research findings will inform my audience how to ensure fair labor practices for all regardless of race or ethnicity.
