Latina Equal Pay Day 2023. 52 cents is not enough!

3 Simple Ways to Support Latina Equal Pay Day

52 cents is not enough

October 5 is Latina Equal Pay Day, and we’re hoping you’ll take action with us on federal policy and raise awareness with us on social media.

Latina workers grapple with a disheartening pay gap. In 2022, Latinas earned on average only 52 cents for every dollar paid to non-Hispanic white men. This accounts for part-time, full-time, and seasonal workers across all industries. When accounting for only full-time, year round workers, the average is 57 cents.

Despite being one of the fastest growing, most powerful groups in the United States, Latina women face a wage disparity that is a clear reflection of the unjust economic hurdles Latinx families continue to encounter. Latina women are overrepresented in industries that are underpaid and often lack basic workplace protections. Farmworkers, domestic workers, immigrant, migrant, seasonal, and part-time workers continue to be left out of critical employment protections. For women who are immigrants, their citizenship status often makes them more vulnerable to wage theft and sexual harassment.

Until the women who perform some of the most essential jobs are able to achieve economic security, our economy and communities will not be as strong as they possibly can be. That is why we must continue to speak out this #LatinaEqualPay Day. Help us end this discrimination!
