Latinas are typically paid just 55 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. This gap in pay, which typically amounts to a loss of $2,425 every month, $29,098 every year, and $1,163,920 over a 40-year career, means that Latinas have to work 22 months to make as much as white, non-Hispanic white men were paid in the previous calendar year alone. This pay disparity has closed very little in the past thirty years: Latinas in 1989 were paid just 52 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. That gap has only narrowed by a penny a decade since.
