Equal Pay for Asian/Pacific Islander Women

Asian women who work full time, year round are paid only 87 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. This gap, which amounts to a loss of $7,310 a year, means that Asian women have to work almost 14 months—until late February this year—to make as much as white, non-Hispanic men did last year alone. But the wage gap is substantially larger for some subgroups of Asian/Pacific Islander women, with some groups making just over half of what white, non-Hispanic men make.
