As the graph from the NYT above shows, fatalities among Latin American-born workers dropped sharply with the deflation of the Housing Bubble, falling from 667 in 2006 to 429 in 2009. But after a long recession, undocumented workers appeared to start flooding back into the country in 2015. The BLS observes:
The number of fatally-injured workers born in Mexico rose 22 percent in 2015 to 415 cases from 340 in 2014. Overall, fatal injuries involving foreign-born workers were at the highest level since 2007.By the way, also from this BLS report:
While women accounted for 43 percent of the hours worked in 2015, they accounted for only 7 percent of the fatal injuries.For some reason, though, this gender disparity doesn’t get much publicity.
