As the American economy grew following World War II, so did the need for cheap labor. In many parts of the United States, Latino Americans and Latino immigrants provided the solution. Seeking political and economic equality with their Anglo counterparts, Latinos joined other groups in the fight for civil rights. The result of these struggles was a new sense of Latino-American identity.
