LGBT minorities face high unemployment, job discrimination, low wages,
study finds

Bloomberg Law
The nation’s estimated 1.8 million lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers of color are particularly disadvantaged, with higher levels of unemployment and on-the-job discrimination as well as lower wages than other employees, the Movement Advancement Project and other think tanks recently reported. The jobless rates for blacks and Latinos outpace the rate of the overall population, but the difference is especially stark among LGBT workers of color, MAP said, citing an analysis from the Williams Institute at the UCLA Law School that showed LGBT adult unemployment exceeded non-LGBT unemployment among Latinos (14 percent versus 11 percent), African Americans (15 percent versus 12 percent) and Asian and Pacific Islanders (11 percent versus 8 percent).

The number of Hispanics attending medical school continues to increase, rising to 1,826 enrollees, according to an October 2013 report from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Despite that increase, Hispanics represent only slightly more than 9 percent of the enrollees compared with their nearly 17 percent of the population, making health care workforce diversity a continuing challenge for the National Hispanic Medical Association.

The truth behind generational stereotypes
Fierce Practice Management
It's quite likely that employees and physicians at your practice span across four different generations, from Baby Boomers to Millennials, creating — as a recent Forbes slideshow put it — "a Petri dish for problems."

A better way to cut workplace stress
HealthLeaders Media
With hospital and health system job losses ratcheting up, healthcare can no longer be thought of as a rock-solid source of jobs growth. Those fortunate enough to have healthcare jobs are eyeing the brisk pace of consolidation and paying more for health insurance as employers shift some of those costs onto workers.
