Help us draw attention to pay disparities for Latinas on Latina Equal Pay Day, which takes place on Thursday, Oct. 29.
Although Latinas make substantial contributions to the U.S. economy, they are most likely to have lost a job, hours or pay during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are also adversely affected by the gender pay gap and typically earn only 55 cents for every dollar earned by White, non-Hispanic men. Latinas must work more than 23 months to earn what White men earn in 12 months. This disparity in pay hurts not only Latinas, but also significantly impacts the families and communities they support.
Please get involved by joining the Twitter storm using the primary hashtag #LatinaEqualPay and secondary hashtags #Trabajadoras and #OwnYourPower2020 on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. Additional information about Latina Equal Pay Day is available here.
