Ms. Magazine: Native Women Earn 60 Cents on the Dollar of White, Non-Hispanic Men
September 29. 2020
Today Ms. Magazine published a piece written by Equal Rights Advocates’ Policy Communications Coordinator Teo Saragi: Native Women Earn 60 Cents on the Dollar of White, Non-Hispanic Men
Here is an excerpt:
There are many contributors to the wage gap: lack of pay transparency, employment discrimination, occupational segregation, lack of affordable childcare, inadequate minimum wage and tipped minimum wage, unfair workplace practices, inadequate access to capital, and general gender and race based bias.
This year, as we prepare to observe Native Women’s Equal Pay Day, women all across the country are banding together to uplift the voices of Native and Indigenous women. It’s time to stand up for equality in this country, and within our own communities. It’s time to demand more, because Native and Indigenous women deserve more.
