Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Report Shows Gender Wage Gap Worse for Black Women

A study of women working fulltime, annual jobs across the United States shows that on average there’s a disparity between what Black and Latina women make in comparison to white women. The November report released in Closing the Wage Gap is Crucial for Women of Color and Their Families indicates that women overall earn 77 cents on the dollar compared to men, but black women earn just 64 per dollar and Latinas earn only 54 cents per dollar.

“The current economy has left women of color in precarious economic circumstances and they continue to encounter substantial barriers to advancement,” the analysis states. “African-American and Hispanic women are more likely than white men to work in jobs that pay at or below minimum wage, and they have also experienced slower wage growth than women overall.”

Findings also show that even in states where white women face the lowest gender gap, women of Black and Hispanic descent still show much lower earnings. States with the worst earnings gaps include New Jersey, Alabama and Utah.  | Your Black World
