Countering a long-term national trend, members of most minority groups in Southern California earn less today compared to whites than was true nearly 40 years ago, according to a new study. The income gap widened most dramatically between Mexican Americans and non-Hispanic whites, the study shows. U.S.-born Mexican American men were paid about 81% of the median income of non-Hispanic white men in 1959, but the figure dropped to 61% by 1989.

A year ago, a few hundred Mexican immigrants took on Southern California's powerful home-building industry--and won. Bound by blood--many came from the same village in Mexico--they endured five months of picketing and poverty. But now those ties are wearing thin. The leadership is feuding. And two big unions are squabbling over who will represent the men, souring one of the labor movement's biggest victories in Southern California in years.
