Hispanic Self-employment in the Southwest: Rising Above the Threshold of Poverty
Self-employment is an option that has been considered a viable economic alternative for minority populations facing barriers to gainful employment in the traditional wage and salary labor market in the U.S. This book examines whether self-employment is an opportunity that will enable the Hispanic householder who resides in the Southwest portion of the United States to earn a living that will keep his/her household above the threshold of poverty.
