When comparing all men and women who work full time, year round in the United States, women typically are paid just 82 cents for every dollar paid to men. This well-documented wage gap is even larger for Native women who work full time, year round when compared to their white, non-Hispanic male counterparts. Native women are typically paid only 58 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. This gap in pay, which typically amounts to a loss of $24,443 each year, means that Native women have to work more than 21 months – until the end of September – to make as much as white, non-Hispanic white men in the previous calendar year.
