Pay gap between Latina women and men

Congresswoman Linda T. Sánchez, Chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), wrote a very interesting article on the pay gap between Latino men and women.  I really connected with Ms. Sánchez and related to what she wrote.

Its astonishing really.  Ms. Sanchez wrote:

“Latinas are the lowest paid workers in the country. In general, women earn 78 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts. For Latinas, the wage gap is even more severe: we’re paid 56 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men.”

It is worth reading and you can read it here.
