As of 2010, with the total population of the United States at 310.2 million individuals, White Non-Hispanic Americans are 64.7 percent of the United States population. While the second largest racial group in America is Hispanics with 16 percent of the population. According to the trends, the population is estimated to be at about 439 million in the year 2050. That's quite a rise in the population in the next 40 years (129 million) and who knows the impact it will have on our economy and job availability. It is also estimated that White Non-Hispanic Americans will be less than half the population at this point with 46.3 percent of the population being that race.
Hiring Ratios Upon review of Tanglewood’s historical data for hiring and promotion I found that of the 4,764 total new hires, 82.9% were white, 16.8% were non-white, and 2.3% were African American. More to the point, as the positions within the company increased to Assistant Store Manager or Store Manager, the overall percentage of white hires to African American hires also significantly increased. Of the external candidates reviewed and hired for the Assistant Store Manager position a full 100% hired were white. These numbers suggest that the company did not meet the 4/5th ratio used in determining disparate impact, in other words, greater than 80% of the applicants hired were white. This number strongly suggests Tanglewood would be found guilty of disparate impact.
While there are 5.3 white people for every person of color among Americans ages 70 and up, the gap is closing among the younger set, according to DiversityInc.com, which analyzed U.S. Census Bureau figures.

Now if the male is also a college graduate the pay gap will increase to $2,482 a month and total of $1,192,000 during their whole career (Henslin, 2010, p. 316). According to Henslin (2010) “The pay gap is so great that U.S. women who work full-time average only 72 percent of what men are paid” (p. 318). The pay gap isn’t just based of gender but also physical appearance plays a role. Not only does a tall male make more than a short male by $166,000 but tall women also make more than short women. But we go back to the gender inequality because taller men make more than taller women.
Economy of Immigration By Tiffany Gilliam Macroeconomics Mr. Toney Introduction United states immigration and nearly tripled since the 1990’s. Although the countries population has more than doubles, the total number of immigrants including illegal immigrants is about the same as or less than the number then.

The effect of immigration on wages is negative for some of these special groups and positive for others.
