This chapter first outlines the self-employment “push-pull” framework and provides insight into the impact of an increasing entrepreneurial base on the talent and skills of Hispanic entrepreneurs. As part of the discussion, the chapter includes an analysis of the sales and profits of Hispanic-owned firms, as well as changes in the relative earnings of self-employed Hispanics during the first decade of the 2000s (particularly before and after the Great Recession). The issue of how entrepreneurial earnings changed for the largest Hispanic ethnic subgroups and for workers in the construction industry versus other industries is also explored.

Keywords:   Self-employment “push/pull”, Hispanic entrepreneurial earnings, sales of Hispanic-owned businesses, profits of Hispanic-owned businesses, Hispanic earnings and the Great Recession, earnings of Hispanic sub-ethnic groups
