Today is Latina equal pay day. Here's what that means

    By: Nor Attisha on Nov 01, 2018

    Emma Hinchliffe writes, "Nov. 1 marks Latina Equal Pay Day—the extra 10 months and one day Latinx women had to work into 2018 to earn as much money as white men made in 2017 alone.

    On average, Latinas are paid 53 cents for every dollar that white, non-Hispanic men make, according to the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement. That 53-cent number shows no improvement from last year, and is in fact worse than other estimates that placed last year’s wage gap at 54 cents to the dollar.

    The Latina wage gap is the worst of the wage gaps for women. When averaged all together, women make 80 cents on the dollar, with Equal Pay Day for that discrepancy marked on April 10 this year."
