WASHINGTON (AP) - A new report from the National Urban League says underemployment is a bigger obstacle for blacks than it is for whites or Hispanics.

WASHINGTON (AP) A new report from the National Urban League says underemployment is a bigger obstacle for blacks than it is for whites or Hispanics.

The league's annual State of Black America report says the underemployment rate for African-American workers was 20.5 percent, compared with 18.4 percent for Hispanic workers and 11.8 percent for white workers. Underemployment is defined as those who are jobless, and those working part-time jobs but desiring full-time work.

National Urban League President Marc Morial says the post-recession economy is leaving too many people behind.

The Urban League is pushing for several economic measures to address these issues, including an increase in the minimum wage.
