Latinx Women Equal Pay Day

Latina women earn 54-57 cents for every dollar paid to a white man.

This means that Latinas* must work 21 months to make a white man’s yearly earnings

(NWLC, 2021).

What steps can you take?

  • Advocate for pay transparency in your workplace

  • Utilize websites to see the average salary per position in your area

  • Educate yourself on the unionization process

  • Address bias within your org against women of color in hiring processes, reviews, and promotions.

* Data for Latinas in this analysis comes from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Respondents self-identify their sex as either male or female. Latinas are women of any race who self-identified that they are of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin. White, non-Hispanic men self-identified their race as white and indicated that they are not of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin. White men are those who self-identified their race as white but whose Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin is not identified in the data.
