dc.description.abstract[Excerpt] African-Americans or blacks made up 12 percent of the United States labor force in 2010. Overall, 18 million blacks were employed or looking for work, representing 62.2 percent of all black people.In 2010, about half of blacks aged 16 and older had a job and 17.5 percent of those employed worked part-time. Blacks are the only racial or ethnic group where women represent a larger share of the employed than do men—more than half (54.3 percent) of employed blacks in 2010 were women, compared to 46.3 percent among employed whites. Employed black women still earn less than employed black men.
