Making America Work: Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in the Workforce and Business (2014)

Making America Work examines the contributions Asian Americans bring to the U.S. economy through as workers and business owners and leaders. The goal of the report is to show the diversity of experiences in our communities. The report’s key findings examine the impact the Great Recession had on Asian American household wealth, the growth in the number of Asian American workers at all income levels, and the major contributions to employment and revenue Asian American and NHPI businesses made. The tremendous impact that Asian American immigrants have on both the workforce and business growth is also highlighted. The report also concludes with policy recommendations to address the issues raised around rebuilding wealth, increasing the opportunities available to the growing number of low-wage Asian American workers, and helping Asian American business owners to expand and succeed.MakAmerWork_FINAL_2015_LO
