Latinas and the Wage Gap • A persistent gender-based wage gap continues to harm women, their families and the economy – and it is particularly damaging for Latinas. Latinas in the United States are typically paid just 46 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. • Overall, women employed full time, year-round are typically paid 80 cents for every dollar paid to men employed full time, year-round. • Even in states with large populations of Latinas in the workforce, rampant wage disparities persist, with potentially devastating consequences for Latinas and their families. • In the 25 states with the largest numbers of Latinas working full time, year-round, pay for Latinas ranges from 42 to 61 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. In Texas, the average pay is 46 cents for every dollar.
