New data released by the U.S. Census Bureau reveals a staggering revelation about the gender wage gap: There is still a lot of work to be done. Black women and Latinas are hit the hardest by the gender-wage disparity.

A recent report by the National Partnership for Women and Families, shows that African American women earn 70 cents for every dollar paid to all men and 64 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. The gender-wage disparity is even worse for Latinas — earning only 55 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.

 

Debra L. Ness, president of the National Partnership for Women and Families, believes the gender-wage disparity is costing women of color a substantial amount of money that could  “Women of color are hard hit by a kind of perfect –- and perfectly devastating –- storm caused by discrimination, a struggling economy and the country’s failure to adopt family friendly workplace policies,” said Ness in a release. “These new data show that the wage gap is costing women of color thousands of dollars in critical income each year that could be spent on food, rent, health care and on meeting other fundamental needs for their families.”

Why do you believe this gender-wage disparity exists?
