CNN: AAPI women have to work this far into the year to earn the same amount that white men earned in 2019

February 11. 2020


ERA’s Shannon Williams, Director of the Equal Pay Today campaign, was interviewed by CNN.com for a story about Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Women’s Equal Pay Day.

Shannon pointed out that there are so many different ethnicities within the AAPI community that the 90 cent average can be misleading: “Vietnamese and Thai are making 67 cents on the dollar. Bangladeshi women are making 60 cents on the dollar and Nepalese women are making 50 cents on the dollar.”

If women could be making what they should be making, what their male counterparts are making, the economy would be doing much better. If we're really serious about making sure that women, particularly women of color are earning the money that they deserve, then we need to make sure that we're making our voices heard this (election) year.
