On the occasion of Latina Equal Pay Day, Joi Chaney, Executive Director of Equal Pay Today! penned a blog post on her Medium page asking "What would you do with equal pay or an extra $1 million?"
Here is an excerpt.
This week, millions of Latinas are asking themselves just that: What would I do with an extra $1 million? Latina Equal Pay Day was on Tuesday, November 1 — the day in 2016 when Latina wages finally caught-up to the wages earned by White, non-Hispanic men in 2015. That’s 10 months — nearly a full year — later. Put another way, Latinas must work 22 months to earn what White men earn in 12 months. Nearly twice as hard to get half as much. How much does this cost Latinas? You guessed it: More than $1 million over the course of a 40-year career. -- Joi Chaney
