According to a recent median pay analysis from the National Women's Law Center, Latinas were compensated just 54% of what non-Hispanic white men were paid in 2021. That means it takes Latina workers almost an entire extra year of full-time, year-round work to be paid the average annual earnings of white men.

Latinas are also paid less than white and Asian women are, even when they have the same educational credentials.

Latinas' earnings ratio compared to white men changed only 4% between 1988 and 2019.

For Latinas, unemployment rose from 4.8% to 12.5% between the third quarter of 2019 to the third quarter of 2020.

At this rate, Latinas won't achieve equal pay until the year of 2197, according to a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Hispanic women are hard-working people, and they deserve the chance of equal pay.

What is the difference? Is it that they are women? Is it that they are Hispanic? Or is it that they are Hispanic women?

Hispanic women need equal pay.
