Abstract

Employment and wages of Puerto Rican men, a group acutely disadvantaged in the labor market are examined by focusing on the role of education and location in these changes. During the 1980s, Puerto Rican men benefited from educational upgrading, increasing returns to education, and wage growth in the Northeast region. Despite these factors, however, real hourly wages grew only by 3 percent, and the proportion of employed men with earnings below the family poverty level remained at 33 percent. These results show the sensitivity of Puerto Rican men to regional economic conditions and the lack of progress of the less-educated workers during the 1980s.
