LatinaEqualPay Day brings awareness of the reality that a Latina woman, on average, must work until November 2nd to make the same amount of money white non-Hispanic men did in the previous year. Over the course of a 40-year career, Latinas will be denied over a million dollars in earnings because of the gender wage gap. Today, we join the #Trabajadoras across the country who demand equal pay for equal work. A Latina’s potential and success should not be limited by inequality. Let’s fight for equal wages and put an end to the inequality that #Trabajadoras face.
1. It takes the average Latina 22 months to earn the same amount that an average white man earns in 12 months.
2. The gender wage gap unfairly limits the potential of Latinas to succeed in their careers. Latinas deserve equal pay for equal work.
3. #LatinaEqualPayLatina workers’ rights are under attack, they are currently making 54 cents compared to the white, non-Hispanic man’s $1.
4. Among all women, Latinas represent the group of women that are most affected by the gender wage gap. Latinas would need to work for 73 years to make what a white non-Hispanic man makes in 40 years.
