Today is Latina Equal Pay Day. Here’s what you should know.

November 20th, 2019 is Latina Equal Pay Day.

The day is marked to indicate the amount of time it would take a Latinx woman to make the same as a white male in 2018. That’s 23 months compared to just 12 months on average. That’s just unacceptable.



Here are some other facts that highlight just how significant the pay gap is for Latin women [via leanin.org]:

Latinas make just 54 cents for every dollar a white man makes.

The pay gap widens for Latinas with bachelor’s and advanced degrees compared to white men with similar degrees.

The pay gap affects Latinas more than any other WOC.

Only 68 Latinas get promoted to managerial positions for every 100 men.

Latin women miss out on over $1 million over the course of their careers due to the pay gap.
